I am looking for a list of AR-10 (only) uppers that are calibered in anything other than .308/7.62NATO rounds. Can anyone help me?

I see you are new here, so I'll be gentle by saying that questions like these are generally covered in the FAQ sections of websites. A list of alternative calibers for the 308/7.62 based AR is located in the 308 FAQ section and here is a relist of that information:

•.243 Winchester
•.22-250
•.257 Roberts
•.260 Remington
•6.5 Creedmore
•6.5 WSM
•.270 WSM
•7mm WSM
•7-08 Remington
•284 Winchester
•.300 WSM
•.300 RSAUM
•.300 Savage
•.338-7mm Benchrest
•.338 Whisper
•.338 Federal
•.338 RCM
•.35 Remington
•.358 Winchester
•.358 HDH (WSSM)
•.450 Marlin
•.500 Phantom (currently not in production)

There are other "wildcats" that people chamber in the big boy ARs, but the above list contains most of the commercially offered alternative calibers.

If you are looking for "AR-10" uppers in other than 7.62 NATO/.308 then we offer the .243 Winchester, .260 Remington, and the .338 Federal.

Not to be overly curious....but why the interest in the other calibers...For me....the reason why I went with the .308 over the others was AMMO availability.
Some of the others are hard to get ammo...again...just curious....
As for the list of other calibers....as what was said....most of them are NOT...an AR-10...but a variant...
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE ...AR-10...ArmaLite....other than the ones TR pointed out....
