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).
