    The thread for best overall caliber has me scratching my head a little. I have started gathering parts to build an AR-10 with uppers in .243 and .308. I know DPMS sells uppers in .260, but I am really itching for one in 7mm-08.

    Is there a reason these aren't more available, and how tough is it to build one? Is is any more difficult than re-barreling one of the other uppers, (or building one from scratch,) are there issues with gas tubes and springs and buffers, anything like that?

    No reason except it's really close to .260, which is preferred for long-range shooting
