    The Beowulf is a .50.

    Never seen a factory AR in .222 Rem or .222 Rem Mag. Haven't seen .17HMR either.

    I'm not sure if it makes the list be cause I'm not sure if the OP was asking, "standard, commercially available" or standard commercially available." If it is the first it maybe it doesn't fit the description of "standard." If it is the latter it is more readily available than some I see listed. It is the 5.7x28. I have my eye on a 6" suppressed one like this.

    6.5 Grendel should be added to the list.
    6mm Hagar is very close. Hornady makes brass and I believe ammo is next.

    Yep forgot about the Grendel/.264 LBC. There's also the 7.62x40WT.
