It kind of depends on the situation, doesn’t it? I mean if a couple of idiots were in my yard a 12 gauge would be in order, if you were sniping something at 400 yards, I’d say 308, although I prefer the 30-06.
You wouldn’t be trying to stir the pot, would you? :wink:

This ^^^^^^^^

But I like the 7.62x39 for short range urban encounters for various reasons.

All good choices with pros & cons. I like the larger heavier caliber. Large, good mass & energy, accurate devastating round that is less influenced by wind at mid to long range than lighter counterparts, but it comes at a cost of a beefier/heavier rifle to wield, more recoil, slower velocities, diminished ammo capacity & double the price per round.

Yup, depends on the situation. I missed seeing .30/06 too.

All the calibers mentioned will get the job done! There are lots and lots of different AR
calibers/options to choose from these days. It’s a pick your poison type situation.The 300 BLK would fit in as well👍
