Has anyone built or have a 7mm-08 in the AR-10/LR-308 frame? I had a bunch of fun building the 6.5CM ar so I thought I might try this one.

Ammo, not cheap enough and reloads can be finicky, I abandoned the idea, my 243 will not shoot reloads reliably, but shoots factory stuff regardless of manufacturer.

The current build is 308 around a BMW 20" barrel

I built one, developed a good load for it, shoots sub .5" at 100yds, fun to play around building then load developing stuff. Now I just need to load up a couple hundred rounds so I can enjoy the shooting side of it.

There are factory AR's chambered in 7mm-08 so I don't see why you couldn't do a build that runs reliably.
