He was going to build an AR10 (.308), but his buddy is coming to town and says he has an AR chambered in 10mm. He is considering switching his plans to building an AR chambered in 10mm if this is a true story. If so, does anyone have information on the pros and cons of these two guns?

Thanks...

If were you, I"d stick with building the AR-10.


I know around here, the 10mil ammo is hard to get so that disqualified that caliber when I was first shipping for Glocks. It would be the same for having it in an AR.

.308 is MUCH easier to get. (if you are building a.308 AR-10 and not the 7.62).

just my $0.02.

but cant you shot the 7.62 out of the .308 upper but not the .308 out of the 7.62 upper cause of the pressure difference?

I'm all for the .308 cause the 10mm wont come even close to the performance of the .308.:)

From what I understand, yes, but don't quote me on that.

Most guys i know go with the .308 build more b/e of ammo considerations and not because of pressure issues, so I wouldn't know for sure.

If i go larger than .223, i'm going m700 and not AR. but tha'ts just me. :D

Ok first i was planning to build the 7.62....i have a .308 savage already. But the 10mm has became my favorite hand gun round my friend told me he has a ar15 a2 chambered for 10mm he said it weights as much as a .223 ar15 but holds less rounds...and i know the ar 10 feels like it weights alot more than the 15. So made me think about it instead. And i have no problem finding 10mm around here not many people shoot them and there always in stock. Around here...

must be nice to have stock on the 10 mil.

If you already have the .308 the AR-10 in .308 woudl use the same ammo, but the argument also applies if you buy the 10mil AR.

Still though, I'd go with the .308 AR. They're also easier to sell if you needed to sell the AR.

It would be interesting to see the performance figures of a 10mm cartridge fired out of a 19 inch barrel. The M1 Carbine in .30 was pretty effective out to 300 yards. It speced out at around 1900 fps with a 120 grain bullet. And there is always some appeal in having a carbine that uses the same cartridge as your sidearm. Recoil is never an issue in the Stoner designs because of the buffer/spring group, so shooting it would likely be pretty fun. Shorter barrels with the .30 were pretty loud weapons, so I would think the 10mm would likely be even louder. Interesting idea anyway.

Well i don't care about selling any guns i plan to pass down ny collection when Im gone ya know what mean. Plus Idk i just feel like .308 are for bolt action and 7.62 are for semi automatics. Just my opinion i have no reasoning for this just how i feel. So basically i got till work dies down in fall to choose lighter 10mm (but less rounds) are the 7.62 more rounds (but more weight) my mean question i guess has anyone tried both and can give a good review?

I always wanted to check out the MP-5/10. I've shot MP-5 in 9mm. The thought of throwing down 180 grain hollow points at 1400 fps seems like a formidable combination. Especially in full auto with a collapsible stock option.

You bring up a good about the sound....hadn't considered that...but Im pretty sure the 7.62 would out reform 10mm considering its a rifle round

No doubt, in regard to the performance comparison, wouldn't expect it too. I just always liked the little .30 M1 carbine as a weapons platform, & kind of wondered what it would be like scaled up to a .40, which it would be as a 10mm. It always had plenty of punch as a .30 for hunting small game up to deer, at ranges inside 200 yards. Which is what I mostly shoot at when I'm out & about. Carbines with iron sights make great heavy cover brush guns, an AR in 10mm would be a sweet little hunter.

Yea it defiantly sounds fun but of course this will be my first ar...so i guess any will be fun. My friend Kyle let me shoot his 22lr .223 & 7.62 to make sure it was what i wanted..but ill probably have to try them side by side to be sure he'll be here in two weeks so ill give my review once i try it also as for prices i get twice as many 10mm compared to .308...7.62 Im sure as about the same locality but I've been told about the cheap Russian stuff that might be cheaper....as for ordering in bulk ill check once Im home and can get on a computer typing to such on this phone fingers are hurting lol

I've seen videos on the internet of people getting over 2,000 fps with the 10mm round out of the 16" mech tech carbines so I imagine a 19" barrel would be more. They were using the hot Underwood ammo with 135 gr. bullets.

Yea those 135 gr 10's defiantly get some speed on them but blazer 200 gr only 26 a box lol...

Go to 5:00 to see the mech tech 16" carbine chrono. That is some nasty stuff, especially if guys like to hunt.

There are semi auto MP-10s & MP-40s on gunbroker all the time. Only $4k, plus the NFA stamp of course. :rolleyes: Still, I want one! Of each!
