    Roommate is looking to get a hunting rifle, spending up to 2k, really want's an AR-10 but we don't really know too much about rifles. Been hunting with a Rem 700 30.06

    Are there any places that sell already put together packages? Found a nice looking Armalite w/scope on Gunbroker for 2400 but really have no idea whats good scope wise, or whether AR-10 is viable for hunting deer/bears? Anybody feel free to design out something between 1500-2000, thanks!

    have a look at DPMS Panther Arms... for the AR-10

    if you're not stuck on a AR-10. maybe a FAL or PTR-91 are other options

    I'd look at FAL's and M1A's also. AR10 is an excellent gun but $$$ in my opinion for what you get.

    .308 will be fine for deer, should be fine for bear as well. Personally I'd want to go a little bigger if I was hunting Grizzley.
