No sir, it absolutely was not. Not even a little. Find the person who told you that, and don't listen to them about anything firearm related ever again.

Seriously, they are that bad with their info.

It has the same velocity as the 5.56 in a 20" barrel, comparing the 20" 25-45 sharps. Its perfectly capable for deer and hogs. It totally trumps the 300bo. Only thing different with the sharps is the barrel, flashider, and ammo, all other parts are the same as the 5.56, mags, bolts, handguards, etc. I own one, and I am building a second. Here is mine.





If you reload, their are also many options for bullets in .257 from 60 grain to 100 grain, and 5.56 brass is easy to convert. I liked its capability more so than the 300BO. Below included the link to their website.

As for the other calibers like 6.8spc and 6.5 grendel they both would be great hunting rounds. Biggest difference is the cost of ammo, barrel and they use somewhat different parts than the 5.56.

They have different mags, bolts, barrels etc. However they are highly effective. The 6.8spc uses a .277 bullet same as the 270 win. It has twice the energy of a 5.56 at the same ranges. The 6.5 grendel is using a .264 bullet, and is capable of out ranging the 5.56 and 6.8spc due to its better ballistic coefficient. I own one of each of these as well. Both would be suited well for hunting deer or hog.

Here is sharps website.

Nice Sharps...and in .25-45 caliber as well! Great little hunting rifle...plenty of velocity and creates a definite wound pattern with that little round.

My only recommendation, if you build one, is to use a Geissele Trigger...well worth the few extra $$ and you'll be glad you have one in the long run!

Thanks, I really enjoy it, the round I am loading is a sierra .257 90 grain hpbt with h335, its shooting submoa and still close to 3000 fps out of that 20". I can say it really has worked out to be a great round, and with the abundance of brass in 5.56, its easy to convert them over to 25-45, as I have. Here is the bullet I am using.

I also am a fan of the geissele, its a great trigger. My all time favorite is the hypertouch 24e, I have one set to 2.5lbs, and its unbelievable, feels like a trigger found in precision bolt guns. The rock river national match varmint 3.5lb is good also, along with its .1555 pins.

Sounds like a .308 in an AR10 platform would be a good way to go for you.

Here is one of mine.
