    Ok, so who makes an upper in .338 Federal anymore? I want one for deer and bear, and maybe even close range elk hunting.

    What configuration AR-10 do you have?

    Here is a company I have no experience with that is producing a DPMS compatible one.

    Here is one from Armalite themselves....

    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.

    Just FYI...
