So it would be like a M-1 Garand, but nail-friendly loading, lighter weight, and more follow up shots for the lady shooter, right?





Just kidding, put the torches & pitchforks away.

308 is pretty identical to the 30-06. the 30-06 is a slightly better cartridge for reloaders due to extra case capacity. heavier bullets for the larger north american species are a plus over the 308 as well. i dont think your going to see it however. the 308 ar10 all the dev and engineering work was already accomplished by colt and stoner so bringing it to life in the civilian world was a easy cheap no brainer when the patents expired.

doing the same for the 30-06 would liekly require re-engineering the lower yet again.

because the two rounds are so close i dont think your gonna see it.

Sorry to say!
But I do not think you will ever see one in the AR Platform.
Keeping in mind that the receivers, bolt assembly of the 308 ARs had to be totally redesigned and are larger than the 5.56 receiver and bolt carrier groups.
Other issues as with bolt action rifles the 30-06 requires a long action compared to the ability of the 308 bolt rifle being able to use the short action. This would force the receiver to be excessive in size if it were to be designed in the AR Platform. Not to mention that it would also even be heavier than the present production 308 ARs which are much heavier than the standard 5.56/223.
Just do not think you will see one anytime close if ever.

Default 308=30-06

agreed ,that they are almost identical. but the greatest difference is a wider range of factory loadings .. from 55grn accelarator up to 220 grn. plus being a long action ,sets the stage for revisions in 25-06 .270,280, even magnums 7mm,300 etc

Yes, I know. But they have been developed and are out there.

I want one in 25-06 and 280 rem. That would be epic coolness right there man. I love me a 25-06 and would love to have an AR style rifle in it. As long as I can get it as accurate as my current AR.

Default 30-06 ar

I have a mag that says the Remington R25 that is currently available in .243,.308,.7mm08 and will be available in 30-06 and 270 some time in 2011. I'ts being marketed as a AR based hunting rifle. I'm already saving up for one.
