Yep that was my main reason for going with the AR platform.
Frequently the coyotes around here will be running in packs of 3-5, and of course hogs tend to travel in herds that can number over 40 animals.
I'll say this though for anyone thinking of building a similar rig, keep in mind that a 24" bbl on the AR10/LR308 platform makes for a very long and unwieldy rig due to the length of the action.
Total length on my rig is right at 52" and it weighs in right around 16lbs without a magazine.
It is strictly a LR type set up vs something you'd want to carry all day.
