I have an AR10 in 308. Unfortunately my wife hates the AR10. 308 is still an option.For anyone that is recoil sensitive, I definitely recommend an AR style rifle. In 308, the recoil is very manageable and much less than even a 30-30 in my experience. I’ve had young hunters who flinch all day with a bolt 308 do very well with an AR in 308. I think they even make an AR platform in 300 win mag, but I think it is a bit pricey.
