Bigger than 7.62?
 
Does anyone know of a caliber for an AR bigger than 7.62 where ammo would be available. I know there is the .458 socom and the .50 beowulf, but I hear ammo is basically impossible to find.

do you reload?? if not then 7.62 and 5.56/.223 7.62x39 is it.

When you own those uppers, you reload. Don't rely on "ammo supply".

are 7.62 and 5.56 the only types of ar ammunition that have the pointed tips? And what do the pointed tips do?

What's the interest Pete? Do you have an application in mind? Writing a report for school? Saw something on TV?

What's up?

sounds like you need to go take a gun safety course before you settle on buying something.

Pointed tips!! Spitzer bullets?? Go back to WWI. Do some research, reading. You will see why, partially.

What's up??

I don't believe he said he was buying anything. I believe he was asking a question about available size rounds. But from the follow up posts, I think this is more of a "writing a book" type of question than a "can you help me build' question.

You know. :confused:
