So in my opinion the 16 " is fine. I have a Rock River LAR-8 (308) with the 16" barrel and have shot deer up to 150 yards with it with zero problems. And it is handy to carry and maneuver when hunting. My LAR-8 is also a 1 MOA Rifle even in the 16 in. barrel. I am very impressed with both calibers even in the 16. And yes I have shot a many a hog with the 5.56 and 6.8 SPC
That's an awesome review of the .458
I have a RRA 458 upper in 16" I think it's fine for 150 yards after that might be too had to tell.
I was talking about the .308 in 20"
I already have a 16" AR 15, SCAR 17 and .458
just wanted something a little more long distance and found the wait was GRUELING... but i got it now! (i need to take a picture for this thread).
QUESTOIN: What ammo do you use for hogs with your 5.56? (brand / weight / jsp or jhp?)
Shameless reason to post the .458 socom again:
