Welcome. SBR? Suppressed? Olympic Arms, JNRifleworks, SSK all make AR uppers in that caliber.

I am told that 10-14" is the sweet spot for accuracy in a .300 whisper. If you dont mind losing some velocity with the lighter loads, 10" pretty much maxes the velocity with lighter bullets. If I were you I would use CMT or Stag receivers and your choice of barrel. For all their flaws, Olympic Arms can make some good barrels. However, if you don't want extra markings, I am 95% sure you can get a factory SBR from Olympic. That means no secondary markings with your name and city/state when you sbr it.

Besides the companies already mentioned, I suggest that you spend a bunch of time researching the 300 whisper in all it's different names.

Quarterbore has his own forums and there are a BUNCH of 300 whisper AR guys there as well.
Pay particular attention to all the threads about functioning problems with carbine-length gas systems and then ask lots of questions from the maker of barrel/upper that you choose.
I highly recommend the pistol-length gas system.

I make a lot of 300x221 barrels and uppers and I would be happy to field your questions as well.
My website also has some pretty good information.
