Need a new AR in 308 with 16" barrel

I do a bit of hog control down south and am looking to get a shorter barreled AR than my DPMS G2 Lite. Anyone have any input or experience with these rifles?
Grey Ghost MK2 heavy
LMT mws defender
PWS Mk2 mod 1
Daniel Defense dd5v1
I had my mind made on the DD but read overgassing issues when suppressed.

Are you open to other calibers?
6.5Grendel has been proving quite effective from 12/12.5 inch barrels. (of course, it's on an AR15 receiver, not AR10, but....)

In 308, look at BA, Faxxon, or LaRue for other barrel options.

I just decided to retire my Armalite AR-10 as a SC pig rifle. It’s great if you’re getting dropped off at a stand at the edge of a peanut field, but it sucks to have to drag it through the swamp.

My replacement will be a 16” 6.5 Grendel. I’m also hoping to have a suppressor for my .300 BLK by the time I get back down there again.

I have a 6.8 that I built that is nice and light. My 20" 308 it just to much and though ive read about the 6.5 i found the 308 with barnes ttsx just slams them.
