SSK makes an upper [url]http://www.sskindustries.com/[/url]. Hesse makes them as well, but I'd stick with SSK.

That SSK link is the place to go for the .300 Whisper. Basically it's a .221 Fireball case...though some use .223 cases. Either way, the caliber will feed in standard AR-15 magazines just fine. While there is a supersonic version of the cartridge, it really stands out as a subsonic loading with a weight of about 220gr. It's efficient shape is great for accuracy and maintaining energy over a distance. That adds up to an AR-15 that you could put a suppressor on (with proper paperwork of course) and have quite the little rifle. It isn't cheap though...$1100 just for the upper from SSK. I heard once online that Olympia made an upper in that chambering for just under $1000, but I've never confirmed that. - Robbie
