Ok, so who makes an upper in .338 Federal anymore? I want one for deer and bear, and maybe even close range elk hunting.
A true Gentleman always provides covering fire while his lady is reloading. It is only proper.
Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist"

What configuration AR-10 do you have?
Here is a company I have no experience with that is producing a DPMS compatible one.http://www.wildlifecallers.com/store/ar-rifle-upper-receivers-ar-barrel-assemblies/338-federal-ar-rifle-upper-barrel-assembly.html
Here is one from Armalite themselves....http://www.armalite.com/ItemForm.aspx?item=U10TBF338&ReturnUrl=Categories. aspx?Category=206a6b07-6437-4393-9a5a-8dbe4f75a94e
Did you want to just purchase an upper to have on hand for those applications? Or did you want to consider changing over to that caliber on a more perm basis?
On a perm basis you can probably have the barrel changed with a .338 Federal compatible one, blue printed and head spaced by a "certified gunsmith" for a lot cheaper than $1000.
