Remington has wrapped an AR body around their Model 597 semi-auto .22 rifle and dubbed it the Model 597 VTR. Price not listed.

They're also chambering their Model R-15 VTR, formerly available only in .223 Rem and .204 Ruger, for a new cartridge, the Remington 30 AR. MSRP $1,225.

Accurate Shooter has a SHOT Show report on the R-15 and the new 30AR ammo. It's short and fat and holds 44 grains of H20, pushing 125 grains at 2800fps. Not quite .308 energy (125/150 = 5/6 = 83%), but close, and plenty powerful enough for deer or other thin-skinned prey.
