To those who say that an AR is not a hunting rifle. Tell them that the only difference between war and hunting is that, in war the prey shoots back.

I call the BS card here. I have spend two years 'at war' (11+ years in the military) and 50+ years at hunting (not to mention 40+ years in LE) and the two are TOTALLY different environments which require different weapons and ammo.

If it is legal where you hunt, and you elect to 'try' and take big game (deer and hogs are big game animals) with this varmint caliber be sure to use the heaviest and tough bullets and take only shots where you have a perfect presentation at limited ranges.
If you want to hunt 'big game' with an AR do as I and my brother and nephews do and get an AR in 7.62X51 (308 Winchester).

It all depends on where you live. In the south deer and pigs are TYPICALLY medium game. I.E. Under 220lbs.
.223 is plenty for either.

I live in a Socialist country and I can hunt with mine. This is a sad time for our US of A.
