    Ok so my buddy loves my ar but he want one in a 25.06. I remebered that oly arms made 1 in a wssm. He wants it to shoot deer i told him that dpms and others make 243. What do you guys think would be better a 25wssm or 243wssm or just a plain 243 AR for deer?

    .243 is going to require an AR-10 based rifle; the case is much too large for the AR-15 platform.

    I'd argue that the .243 wssm might have a better bullet selection, but the .25 wssm will be roughly the equivalent of the .25-06 cartridge.

    I guess the biggest question is do you want to spend a little more on the platform (AR-10) and have a very common cartridge available mostly anywhere (regular .243), or do you want to have the AR-15 platform and spend around double on ammo that may or may not stick around.

    If money is no object, get the .300 ossm. This round has really peaked my intrests.
