These are my 2, top is built of an Oly lower with mostly bushmaster parts. Bottom is built off of a DPMS lower and upper with a Bushy 14.5" barrel with a double Y comp pinned and welded to bring it to 16", working on plans for a third, a 24" match Hbar AR-10 in 260rem Thanks to Dan at gunconnection for the EOtech, my latest AR ornament.

I have a .260 bolt gun and I think that is one of the best compromises for a long range cartridge one can pick.

FWIW, I'd suggest going with the DPMS version of the AR-10 if you're looking to get easy LR performance, for their versatility. The Armalite package is slightly different and you just about have to go custom to get a decent "off caliber" upper for the "real" AR-10. DPMS has quite a few "off the shelf" choices.

My "NFA hobbykit":



Lower is from an RRA Elite (my first AR). Timney trigger, Houge grip, CTR stock. Got the NFA engraving done by Orion Arms on the front of the magwell. (not shown)

The 10.5" SBR upper (registered config) is an LMT. CMT MPI bolt with upgraded extractor, Troy rail, ARMS low-profile BUIS. I don't have an optic for it right now...I'm thinking a Trijicon RX01 Reflex.

The 7.5" upper is an RRA 9mm upper with ramped bolt, Gas-Buster charging handle, Troy rail, and EOtech 512. To run it, the lower gets a Hahn bottom-loading mag block and a "Slash" 9-Q buffer and Wolff XP spring.


I also have a Colt 6920 upper for which I'm probably going to pick up a POF lower next week. Thinking about doing it in Dark Earth...not decided yet though.

There's also an AR10 somewhere around here.

Who assembled that sweet lower? Is that a RRA trigger group?

I have also been keeping an eye on the 6.5 creedmore, almost ballistically identical to the 260rem, but OAL is equal to standard 308win, and works better in an AR-10 action. I have built 4 AR's over the past couple years, and outside of the cost savings, the ability to match and hand fit specific parts and the reward of firing a rifle built from the ground up can't be beat.
