Does anyone deer hunt with your AR-10 .308 assault rifle? I could not decide between purchasing a new deer rifle or an assault rifle so I settled on a hybrid of the two and bought a DPMS AR-10. I was wondering your thoughts with deer hunting with it. I know the trigger is poor for deer hunting. Just curious, comments welcome.

I don't own a single assault rifle. Though I have two AR platforms.




AR= Armalite Rifle

The AR in .308 makes a fine hunting rifle, you just have to be diligent at keeping the bolt, and action clean and oiled. A Timney AR trigger is a quality part to add on.

OP, read up on what an "assault rifle" really is. The lamestream media and our Second Amendment opponents use the term to sound big and scary. I'm not sure if any of the shootings in the US involving so-called "assault rifles" really involved true assault rifles, meaning selective fire or full auto plus some other criteria.

The press and libs like to call them military grade assault weapons roflmao

Like the others, I too have an AR10 but it's never assaulted anyone. It does make an excellent deer rifle and is deadly accurate out to 600 yards.

A Green Horn already using disrespectful terminology of our MSR, Modern Sporting Rifles. This AR and Black Rifles is what the puplic and press and others wants them to be portrayed as.

I started hunting with a Colt 901 last year. I'm very pleased with it.

the problem with my AR is I leave it on a tree by a trail waiting on it to assault a deer or pig for me but the gun never moves, it must be defective.

I hunt with a M&P AR-10. Great rifle for deer and hogs, but assault rifle it's not.

I'm thinkng the "assault rifle" nomenclature may have been a tad tongue in cheek?
