.22 Long Rifle
222 Remington Magnum

6.5 Grendel (.264 cal)
6.8 SPC (.270 cal)
.300 Remington SAUM
Found this on the web thought it was helpful and I would share it. Here is the web link to give credit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AR-15
Added a few already. Help me keep them in size order please, I need help with that. So which calibers are the most common? I will underline them.
Let's not forget many more, almost anything that fits. .17 HM2 is the smallest followed by the .17 Remington, then step up to the 5.7 x 28 and we can then fill in almost everything from the entire line of WSSM cartridges followed by countless wildcats, such as the .500 Phantom (while full advantage is gotten in the AR-10/LR-308 platform it can work in the AR-15 platform as well).
I'm afraid the list is not almost complete, and likely never will be. Thank goodness!
357Sig, 440Corbon & 40Xtreme. I know theres more.
Thanks I am trying to stay with the ar15. I am just trying to build a list. So are the 499 LW, 45 Professional, 6mmWoa, 300/221 fireball, 470 Rhino--AR 15 or AR 10?
It's a general encyclopedia, so it's generally sufficient for general topics.
The specialist topics are hit-or-miss.
I wouldn't crack open a [print] general encyclopedia (e.g. Encyclopedia Brittannica, Encyclopedia Americana) expecting to find informative, expertly-written specialist topics (i.e. technically accurate AR-platform stuff, soils science, hydrology).
I would go to a specialist encyclopedia (e.g. Encyclopedia of Plant and Soil Science, Encyclopedia of Materials Science, Encyclopedia of Nanotechnology).
One cool thing about Wikipedia, though.... sometimes the people writing the entry for the [for example] high-energy physics stuff are the same ones simultaneously publishing their latest work in peer-reviewed academic journals.
But still hit-or-miss.
I have taken college class and they say not to use wikipedia as a source, but I'm not writing a college paper here. I don't put my full trust in the information that comes out of this site most of the time. I use it as a guide because forums are made of opinions I'm just trying to put together a list and wikipedia did help me get it started. So lets fix it and get it right, instead of talking about wikipedia. So please help me.
From the archives
Wildcats or rounds for which factory ammo is not available:
.20 Vartag Turbo
.22 Lindahl Chucker
.30 PPC LONG
.502 Thunder Sabre
BUt even that list is not complete..
I think the list should include a list of mfgs for some of these odd balls.
Bohica Arms makes bolt action uppers in...
50 DTC-EDM Spec
338 Lapua Magnum
I have given up on the list because everyone say the list is a never ending one. I didn't know there was so many calibers. I was just looking for the main one but I know what they are. So thanks for the help guys.
The list really is never ending, considering I have some barrels here chambered in calibers I have developed but not shared ... and I am sure there are others out there who have done the same. As long as there are people wildcatting rounds, there will be new and additional calibers chambered in the AR platform.
Marty, you had a pretty good list posted on the 458 socom forum
