You will need to step up to AR10 Platform, due to length of Shell.

The AR10 isn't big enough for 300 win. If you decide to build one you're going to need some manufacturing equipment and an engineer.

Beat me to the punch the .300 win mag is right at 1/2" longer than the .308 it wont fit in the magwell either
There are companies out there that make uppers for the AR15 in larger calibers , however these long distance rounds are going to be bolt action or breech loaded .

I get that the 300Mag is larger(short vs long), but what platform of AR do you use. If it's the AR10 platform, BUT you only feed a single Shell at a time, abeit it is gonna be harder to load through the Ejector Port, it's still the AR10 platform---just can't use the Mag Well.
What am I missing here? What's needed to be changed?

Most will be like these styles . Some bolt action some breech where u actually push out the back pin out of the upper and acres a round onto the chamber via breech method

The .308 is a short action round. 300 win is a long action round with a different bolt face.

If you wanna rechamber the barrel, mill out a new bolt, and not be able to eject the casing, I guess that's cool. Sounds stupid to me.

AR15 Platform, there's just a simple change of either just Barrel, or combo of Barrel, Bolt and Magazine. Everything else stays same.
AR10 is totally different and you must go with this platform in using all components. Nothing in AR15 will work in this platform. Much higher costs with this platform.
oh and some AR15 parts are interchangeable with the AR10 platform.
