    Its called the AR10- the rifle that came before Fairchild designed the AR15. The AR10 shot .308 cartridges.

    My bad. :embarassed: I thought he was talking about a rifle.
     
  7. It's not really like a .308. It's ballistics are barely like the .300 Savage. It comes in one weight 125 gr in either ballistic tip or JSP.

    It's a .450 Bushmaster case necked down to .308. Fires a 125 gr bullet at 2,800 fps (probably from a 24" test barrel not a 16" carbine). That's equal to a .300 Savage with the same weight bullet, but the standard bullets for the .300 Savage are a 150 or 180 gr.

    I think it's a great idea, but Remington is doing a terrible job marketing the round.

    Prolly cause the whole .30 cal thing is pretty much micro niched out.
     
  10. 1. Remington is not marketing it well.

    2. As far as I know remington has kept it proprietary so no one else can make them.

    Too bad because it sounds like it would be a good hog, deer, and home defense round if it were more main stream .
