Nephew bought a armalite AR-10 B carbine 16 inch. He was also gonna buy a hunting rifle. Just wondering if he can just slap a scope on it and use it for deer? Max shot at our land is no more then 200 yards.I have no clue what the AR is capable of. Any first hand input would be appreciated. Thanks

Sure he can. Just don't carry a magazine that holds more than five rounds while deer hunting.

I use a scoped, supressed LR-308 and love it. Its shoots MOA with good factory ammo and is really fun when a sounder of hogs rolls through. Its plenty for deer within 200 yards. The only down side I've found is racking a shell into the chamber is LOUD in a deer stand bc you have to let the bolt fall forward. No way to quietly load a shell.

Cool, thanks for the input. I didn't see a need to buy a hunting rifle if he had a AR. I told him to look at the P 308 from Nikon. I'm thinking it should be a good combination.

I do too, and TXhuntr2 is right it is loud. I rack one when I get out of the truck. I racked one real easy and quiet last year in the blind and it didn't fire. You gotta let that thing slam.

that's what that bolt assist on the right side of the upper is for. Assist in fully closing the bolt.

I've found that I drop less pigs with an AR than with a bolt action .270. I think I rely too much on the second (third, fourth, fifth...) shot with an automatic.

EDIT: Semi-automatic of course

Yes kills them just as dead as a bolt gun. Great for my daughter being very light recoil shooting 308 178 grain Amax. And much more fun when the hogs show up. I can hit steel out to 800 yards with it, can't say that about my bolt rifles.
