    anyone own or shot one?


    I've personally never fired the .308 round in any weapon let alone an ar-10.


    Wondering what the pro's cons of a AR-15 vs an AR-10 if you wanted some more kick?

    Everything for the AR10 costs more.

    Really it comes down to wanting a rifle chambered in 5.56 or 7.62. They both have benefits and drawbacks. Up close there is very little difference between them in terminal ballistics unless you are talking about barrier penetration. 7.62 wins the race as the distance increases. You can carry a lot more ammo in 5.56 than you can in 7.62 which is one of the main reasons why the US military went away from the 30.06 M14 in WWII to the M16 in 5.56 for Vietnam.

    Some guy was selling an Original Armalite AR-10 at the gun show last year for $6,000. Unfortunately my dad had just bought a sniper rifle and had no more money to blow.

    That would be the only one I would because of the history.
