I've never had any desire to own either but now I'm wanting one.

I love 30 caliber guns but don't know if it's worth the effort buying a 308 or 300 Blackout in an AR platform. I'll definitely be predator hunting with whatever I get and I'm sure I'll shoot a deer or two with it just as a novelty but it'll mainly be a defense/predator hunting gun. I've looked at just about everything on the net and factory guns are high but I like the FN SCAR series and Sig ARs.

Buy it or build it? I'm not familiar with AR platforms at all but it seems like building one is a good bit cheaper than buying a factory gun.

One of each! Then buy an 300BO upper.

Kinda like asking half ton or 3/4 ton, both trucks but each have pros and cons.

If you want to build there are plenty of detailed YouTube videos that can walk someone through it.

AR10s are heavy if you will be on the move a lot. AR15 is a ton lighter and can be had in some pretty potent rounds. AR15 parts and accessories are quite a bit cheaper for the most part too. I have both but my 10 is a shooting house gun only.

AR15 in .223, 1/7 twist. lighter, compact, and you can still reach coyotes a long way off ...

I absolutely love my 300 blackout. I have sold all my ar10's. I like them but I like my 308 in a bolt gun. My 300 does great on stuff within 200yds. If you want to use an ar15 but still reach out and touch something, a 6.5 grendel with 20" barrel is the ticket. Maybe when the 277 wolverine picks up more steam it will fill that role but right now grendel is good.

AR 10 is going to be a lot heavier.

And the 300 Blackout is just a 30 cal upper on the AR15 lower.

I had an AR10 and hunted with it a couple of times. It weighed around 13/14lbs. Killed a doe with it and sold it.

Patriot Ordnance Factory (POF) has the Revolution line of 308 piston driven carbines that weigh just over 7lb. https://pof-usa.com/revolution/
They are pricey but are really good guns and very accurate. I had a P-308 several years ago but it was 9 plus pounds. The Revolution will be my next AR

I need to get down there and let you shoot my AR15 in 6.5 Grendel. It will make you forget about a .308 Hank.

6.5 Grendel would be a good option.

Wrong - My DPMS G2 in 308 is the same size as a AR-15 and weighs 7lbs. laugh

Would depend on what I was wanting to do with it. Varmit hunting I would want the AR-15, deer hunting the AR-10. Yes, you can kill a deer with a .223 or 5.56 but it doesn't have the FPE of a .308. In a handful of states, it's illegal to deer hunt with a .223.

There are better caliber choices in the AR10 platform too, IMO, but I don't own one.

There's way more caliber options available for the AR15
