My dad has a DPMS AR-15 catalog. If you can get one they have a lot of real steel AR-15 rifles. They only thing about it is that the carrying handle isn't removable and it is semi only since it is a civilian rifle.

Well duh it's semi only, you can only get semi only unless you pay out your *** for the permits and move to a state where you can actually get fully automatic weapons. That's a lot of red tape. Ask Maglips about AR's or whatever, he knows a lot more than some catalogue would tell you.

RNA I would suggest for the cost of those AR's you could build your own the way you want it in most cases for far less than an off the rack. my last AR build cost $580.00 fully magpuled out . If you look around lowers can be pick up all over the place for under $100.00 If want to build your own and need some places to buy from pm me and help you out with were to buy from .

I have never seen a reel steel remington AR but I am guessing it would be similar to my dads DPMS which is really nice, no loose parts. Everything is in tact and it is well made. My only complaint is the stock. It is a little difficult to retract but had molded finder indents so it feels really nice. Check out this website:

RNA, PM Maglips about ARs.

For a hunting platform, I'd look at 20+" barrels, quality finish (prevent rust), milled receiver, flat top upper and a 2 stage trigger.

Hunting AR companies
Stag Arms
Rock River Arms
Bushmaster
Remington (Never Owned One)

this is the AR we found... but it has no reviews or ratings which is why i figured id ask if anyone has expierence or atleast shot one to see how it performs.

Renee, you need to define what type of game you will be hunting for anyone to give you a decent answer on what gun may suit your purpose.

For varminting/small game, an AR15 in .223/5.56x45 will work well. For larger game, such as deer, you will need the R25, or some other AR10 style platform in a larger caliber, such as .308 WIN. Remember, hunting deer with a rifle in Ohio is illegal.

Then you will definately want something in a .308 or larger.

Renee, I would look around, and research all of your options before making a decision. I wouldn't by start narrowing it to one platform, and brand so quickly. Most AR 10 style platforms can only chamber up to a .308 Win. This is not really suitable for elk.

I would recommend looking at all manufacturers AR 10 platforms, if you really want an AR style. I would also recommend looking at other, more traditional semi auto hunting platforms.

To be quite honest, for deer hunting, I would recommend a bolt gun. Bolts will offer you more options in caliber/cartridge, and they are more accurate and more reliable. they are also generally less expensive.

The .308 will drop most deer, but there are some better cartridges for the task. For elk, your best to use a magnum cartridge such as .300 WinMag or similar. There are alot of options for a deer rifle, make sure you do your research to make sure your rifle will do you what you need before you buy.

RNA, As stated before you will need a bigger caliber if you want to hunt for elk. I would recommend a .30-06. When my father and I went hunting for elk and a big horn sheep we both had used a .30-06. His elk was a clean, one shot kill. The big horn sheep got away but I think this was due to me missing the lungs or heart, there for it ran farther.

The reason I would pick a .30-06 over a .300 Win is because they both give similar results but the .30-06 has a few pros. Not as much recoil, the bullets seam to be a bit more available (at least in my area), and it will put out to around 280 yards just like a .300 Win. Yes the .300 Win is more powerful, but unless you plan on taking a shot out farther than 280 yards, the 30-06 will be plenty for you. Plus the lighter recoil on the 30-06 makes it a bit more friendly to me.

Hope this helps you out some RNA,
Best of luck

You can pick up Remington boltguns in 30-06 cheap and it works in many firearm applications. I own a Remington 700 BDL and it's a wonderful shooter.

Wahugg makes some good points about the 30-06 Springfield. It can be a capable performer on large game such as elk, provided they are loaded with a modern, high quality, expanding bullet. The Barnes Triple shock and Swift Scirocco are especially good. Too many hunters cheap out on their ammo and then wonder why their deer run a half mile after they are shot.

Renee, if you want to hunt elk, the AR won't cut it. I would look into bolt guns from Remington, Winchester and Savage. The 30-06 would be a great all around chambering, as most hunting shots are less than 200 meters. Be sure to research ammo for the the game you intend to hunt, and buy the good stuff, for your sake and the animals.

After you decide on a rifle/cartridge combo, take it to the range and get familiar with it. If you zero at 200yds, shoot it at 100, 150 and 250yds and figure out how much holdover or holdunder you need at different ranges. The best rifle in the world won't be worth squat if the shooter isn't doing their part.
