The AR-10 & DPMS LR-308 are one of the most popular large-caliber rifles for military use, sporting and target shooting. They can be configured in many calibers, not just the standard caliber of .308 Winchester. The AR portion of the name is an abbreviation for Armalite Rifle, the firearms manufacturer that first developed the AR platform in the mid-1950s. “.
