Yup. I agree with JonM.

Besides, my AR10 loaded up is well over 12 pounds. If you are chasing pigs, that sh!t will get old REAL quick.

Or, go with .458 SOCOM upper. Cost is $600
hits with nearly the same power as a 308 up to 100 yards.

Although, ammo is expensive.

Did you try looking at rock river?
Their LAR-8 still $1250+

I think if you were to wait 2 more years, the prices would be sub $1K
As every manufacture is getting more requests to build in .308

I just spent $3K on a POF 308 20" for hogs.
RRA is backed up 120+ days on lar8 orders... Too long of a wait for me lol...

My brother in law has the 50 Beowulf... the rounds are scary lookin... Uppers are only 600 bucks +... Ammo is ok on price but is hard to find right now..

Nope, not what I said. just that they are different for different purposes. If I could only keep ONE of my guns, it would be one of the AR's. But I'm telling ya, that ArmaLite makes for a long hump to the deer stand...I can't imagine chasing hogs all day with that big bastard.

So I dont need a tack driver just something that will go bang when I pull the trigger. This gun will get abused bad. The sks that I have been using is beat to heck and I dont want to do that to some $2500-3000 rifle like the gun shops around here are wanting to sell me. So what is a good brand that will go bang all the time but wont break the bank? Or a good place online to find a used one?
no need for an AR10 ... 458SOCOM is what you want

We are just being honest and trying to help you not sell you a gun

I like the idea of a lever gun too. Cartridge belt for reload as you go, fast enough cycling for piggies.

The ar10, unless you fork over a huge chunk of loot for a larue lightweight or a colt 901 is just too clunky and heavy for fast moving hogs in the texas brush.

Ive got a marlin 1895 gbl 45-70 for texas brush hunting in the cactus and mesquite. I do most of my hunting in texas

Those piggies treed me last year when I couldnt get the next stripper clip in there fast enough. (Me and a buddy came over a ridge and there were about 15 pissed off pigs) Thats one of the main reasons I wanted to upgrade. I didnt even think about changing the sks over to accept mags till after I had already posted on here.

Um 30 rounds inn a pmag with 220 gr .300 blackout subsonics sound like it'll work just right 4 ya.

Best thing is that it is a basic ar15 with 30 caliber barrel and bullets. Nice n light and plenty of capacity.

I waited nearly a year for the POF 308!!! they first told me it was going to be 3 months... then they put a Dept. Fish & Game contract in front of my order.

50 Beowulf is also a bad ass hog gun.

If I were to get another .308 semi-auto, I would be looking at KEL-TEC RFB.

No idea if it's quality but it's defiantly bad ass.
