In combat, the M16 is almost always used on the semi-auto mode, which effectively means they are carrying around AR-15s because once they are in the same firing mode they are the exact same weapon.

Hunting rifles are generally bolt action and are used with larger caliber ammuntion designed to hunt big game. There are also limited to smaller maganize capacities (5 or less) where as the AR-15's detachable maganize can fire 30 at a time.

All in all, AR-15s are not great comparisons to your typical hunting rifle. They are actually the exact same weapon as the M16 when both are in semi-auto mode (which is the firing mode of choice for most military personnel). Weapon attachments like bump stocks also turn them into fully automatic weapons, if desired.
Good lord you should just stop.

"Hunting rifles are generally bolt action" is just outright stupid. I've got a 1964 Winchester Model 100 that disagrees.
