.22lr, 223, some 6mm-x45 variant, 10mm, 9mm, .45ACP, maybe a .40 short and weak? .50 Beowulf, 7.62x39, .300 Whisper, 45 Professional, .50AE, .50 BMG (single shot or bolt action). Man, you can have whatever you want on the AR's lower receiver.

I know you are missing some. Doesn't someone do the WSSM family? and .243 I think.

308 sized cartridges require an AR-10 based rifle as Raygun stated.

I didn't see 30 carbine in the above list and I believe that Olympic makes an AR in that caliber.

Is there a 22-250 upper for the AR-10????

I didn't see:

.17/.223
.17 Predator
6 WOA (necked down 6.8 SPC)
.25 x 45 (.25/.223)
.223 WSSM
.243 WSSM
.25 WSSM
6.5/.243 WSSM

And for the AR-10 I didn't see
.338 Federal
.358 Winchester

I've built a few of the .358 Winchesters and am about to launch into building some more wildcats on the WSSM line. The 7mm, .300 .338 and .358. The .358's brass will be trimmed a little to qualify for Indiana big-game legal.

The .450 Bushmaster is still pretty new.

I'm really wanting an upper in 204.
