    Remington Model R-25™

    I guess Remington is taking this merger with Bushmaster very seriously. First the R-15, which is an AR-15 based rifle specifically designed for coyote and predator hunting, and now this larger (AR-10 size) rifle for big game hunting.

    Now they just need to add .338 Federal to the group... to round things out. (.243, 7mm-08, .308, .338 Federal)

    The parent cartridge for all of them is the .308, so just a barrel swap would allow you to shoot all four offerings from the same rifle. :D

    A 338 Federal R25 would be high on my list. I just got a call that the elk are tearing up the orchards again. I really need to get an elk gun!

    The 308 might suffice but the 338 would be ideal.

    Damn fine looking gun right there. I've been looking at these:

    DPMS: AR-15 Rifles, Parts and Accessories.

    You can get one for around $1200 or so. MSRP on the Remington is $1500. Not sure about retail pricing though.

    When looking at these upsized AR15 rifles, inquire what magazines are being used. Most are propriatary and unique to that one manufacturer.
