new AR hunting rifle

I am a month to 2 months out from getting a new rifle. I like the flexibility of the AR style but require the larger AR 10. I was thinking a 308 or similar cartridge may a little more power for longer range shots. I am done some research on Remington and DPMS rifles but what are some other companies that make HUNTING AR 10 rifles.

So if you could help me out thanks

Just so your clear an AR10 is an ARMALITE rifle and that designation does not apply to any other 308 battle rifles that may look the same. There is also very little parts comminalty between any of these weapons systems.

Re: new AR hunting rifle

The Remington R-25 is a DPMS as both Remington and DPMS are owned by the same Parent company. I own an R-25 in 7mm-08 and my buddy has a DPMS on 308. Both are quite accurate with .5 MOA accuracy with hand loads and a few factory loads. I like the balance and camo finish in the R-25. Mounted a 3.5x10 Mark 4 on it.
