This is my first post, so here it goes.  I have been thinking a lot about calibers I wish they made for the AR.  Here is my short list.
1) A conversion kit for the .17 HMR much like the .22's out there
2) .17 Rem Fireball (I know, similar to the .204s already made)
3) .300 WSM (a great round, but not sure how it feeds)
Anyone have some to add?

A 450 marlin on a DPMS lower not an Armalite lower. I already have a DPMS lower.

17 Fireball is better known as 17 MachIV and has been chambered in the AR

300 WSM has been chambered but seems to be more sensitive than 300 RSAUM

450 Marlin is offered by Accuracy Systems in the DPMS rifle ...

Any good custom AR builder can make one.  Tromix used to make them, plus 17 Rem.  Check with Calhoon, as he offers his 19 Calhoom among others.  www. chuckhawks.com might be a helpful place or www.saubier.com

Alexander Arms announced at the NRA Show 2008 their intention to make a .17 HMR upper called the "Valkyrie." Engineering is done, tooling up for the plastic mags is the remaining step.

Cobb made one they are around CDNN had a few, used BAR mags

357 supermag aka 357 maximum.  Won't work with the current mags though.  Tried it,  Cutting the rims like a .223.  Mag was the problem.
