Stoner actually developed the AR prototype for hunting. It was only after the developement was far along did the idea of making it a military rifle struck home. His first militay contract was the AR-10 (7.62 NATO) sold to Spain.
It was many years later that the USAF bought the M-16.
So, yes, I think the AR is a great hunting rifle.
