Best Cartridge For Ar-10

Recommended Posts

I am getting ready to buy an AR-10 and would like to know what would be the best cartridge; a 308 or something else.

:fir: If you plan on shooting it very much, go with 308, that way you can use cheap surplus ammo. Otherwise, you'll be stuck paying $17 per 20rds.

A few companies are offering FAL's in calibers other than 308, namely 243 and 260REM. They look like interesting calibers, but then every time you empty a 20rd mag, that's $15 or more gone. Surplus 7.62x51 ammo can be had for $35 per 200rds.

If you plan on doing more hunting than plinking, or like reloading, then you might like the other calibers, but for plinking, stick with the 7.62x51.

I see that Silver Bear is now offering brand new 308 ammo fairly cheap. -Captain Eddie
