I just got word that Palmetto State Armory released a new upper chambered for the 350 Legend hunting cartridge. This cartridge released a lot of attention at SHOT Show 2019, and has since been receiving a lot of support from various firearms manufacturers.
We had exclusive coverage of this while at SHOT Show and were at the unveiling of this new cartridge. You can see our video here:

As far as I can tell and from what I know about this upper, it will mount up to any AR-15 lower that you may have, or choose to buy from the company. The only issue you may have is finding magazines, but from what I’ve read you can use a 5.56 mag that has been modified.
I have not tried this, though.
