I'm considering buying an AR15 for hunting, primarily whitetails and hogs. My son has a tricked out AR15 that I have used to shoot two deer over the past two years. I'm debating (with myself) whether to get a 5.56 or a 6.8. Considering the 5.56 simply because of the availabilty of parts, ammo, etc but also looking at the 6.8 for the additional firepower. Suggestions?
Also any 6.8 owners in the north San Antonio/Bulverde area (Texas)?
