308 is a great deer round, regardless of how its delivered.
Some AR 15 choices to consider: 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Grendel, .300 Blackout, .458 SoCom.
The 6.8 probably has the most ammo choices "on the shelf", my LGS stocks Silver State 6.8 in soft points. Hornady loads an SST in the 6.8. SST is a great bullet for deer.
Now the problem is too darn many choices in the AR 15.
