While the .223 Remington/5.56mm NATO AR-15 might still be the darling of the gun world, many shooters want something that packs a bit more punch, especially when it comes to hunting. Many jurisdictions require larger calibers to ensure clean, ethical kills on game. That’s where big-bore ARs step in. But we can’t forget the other rifles still popular among American shooters, like lever actions, bolt actions and double guns. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best big-bore rifles, new and classic alike, to help you see just how diverse your shooting options truly are.
