    The biggest difference is the AR10 fires the .308 cartridge or other similar cartridges and the AR15 fires the .223 cartridge or other similar cartridges.

    Simply put, the AR-10 (.308) magazine wont fit in the AR-15 (.223) mag well.

    You can make any one AR-15 platform to make interchangable rifles in 204, 223, 221, 6.5,

    As for any AR-10 lower can make rifles in 338 Federal, 308, 7-08, 260 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, and 243 type calibers..

    There are only a few differences between for both of the two, Alto. The magazine and overall length and well, the stopping power.
