I know DPMS makes a .243 AR. Im looking for more of a lightweight hunting rifle.

Anyone know of a company that makes like a .243 without heavy barrels/bull barrels?

Or atleast uppers, I know it is just an AR10 lower.

Get a .243 WSSM upper from Olympic Arms or one of the other custom makers. It's .243Win ballistics in a fat case that fits in an AR-15 Mag.

You could also go .25 WSSM which is basically .25-06 ballistics in a fat case that fits in an AR-15 Mag.

All you need to buy is the upper for them if you already have an AR.

If they have figured out how to keep the receivers from cracking.

Yep, Armalite makes one. Company I recently ordered my AR10 shows a few in stock, but I wouldn't reccomend them....(the company)

Olympic is also making a 22-250 AR15 that uses standard ammo, but they need a proprietary lower and magazine so they'll fit.

It's called the UMAR.

As for receivers cracking, they've got a lifetime warranty if they do. Although I've only seen one picture that has been regurgitated a million times on the interweb. And to my knowlege, it was a cast receiver that no one uses anymore anyway.
