    I was thinking of getting an AR 10 in 338 federal for moose and longer range shooting with friends. I was wondering if I could use an AR 15 top placed on an ar10 bottom. I am thinking of getting a 223 for saving money but would it work and be accurate

    No you can not do that they are diffrent sizes.

    Not to mention there is no standardization at all with the AR10 platform. AR10 is an Armilite rifle and is not compatable with say an SR25, MRP etc.... most of the time the magizne wells arre not even the same.

    If you would like other sugestions I have them but they will cost more money and I am assuming if your talking 338 Federal your looking at a DPMS wich is bottom of the barrel in the AR world.
