Guy Sagi, the Editor in Chief of Shooting Illustrated, has written about his experience hunting antelope with an AR-10.

It is great to see semi-automatic rifle hunting going mainstream.

    According to the original link the caliber is .243 Winchester. And the rifle being used is not an Armalite AR-10. It is DPMS LR243L.

    I shot a whitetail in Montana with a RRA LAR-10. One shot, behind the shoulder, from 120 yards. DRT.

    I got the 26" barrel, and this gun is HEAVY. Unless I have to lug the gun two miles or more into the bush, then you better believe I'll hunt with my AR-10.
