The WSSMs require a AR10. The AR 15 will not handle the larger cases .
If you are going to buy a AR look at both the AR10 and the AR15. For longer ranges on
game the AR10 (Remington has one called an R25). They make it in a 243,7/08 and 308.
The AR10,R25 would be better for deer and down.
The AR 15 comes in many calibers that are suitable for varmints and a few that I would use
I prefer the 7/08 for all round use on varmints to deer at 500+ yards because of bullet weight,
selection and ballistics.
