What's the best upper in both .223 and .22lr if possible for these 2 lowers? Feel free to add other lowers with the best upper.

Ameetec -

Looking to build something nice.

Given those lowers are milspec, most name brand uppers should work just fine function wise, it's just a matter of the perfect color match (depending on how important that is to you). What length/style (piston, carbine, mid length, long range, etc.) upper are you looking for, budget, ammo preference, etc? Once you answer these questions we will be able to provide a good recommendation. Without that, it really is a crapshoot as to whether it will suit your needs...

Too broad of a question. Decide what you want to do with your AR. Build a rifle to to fit those needs.

Depends on the color shade you want if we are talking stripped uppers.
I guess one could argue that a billet upper would be of better quality to make sure the upper is straight. Check out this link (http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=4&t=412304).

If I went with a target shooting set up? Which upper to get? What other type of AR setups are there?

Full upper? Whats your budget? How far are you shooting out to? You give me $1500 and I can build a real nice upper without optics. Optics will be another grand or so.

Or we can build you a budget one.

Are you going to be carrying the gun or is it all bench.

Sure, but are you looking for a traditional AR build (fixed stock, carry handle, etc), an M4 clone, a flat top hunting rig? Post a picture of what you want your final gun to look like, and we will go from there.

What's your budget though? Budget can be $700 or 5000 depending on the person.

Starting point should be your budget.

Then you could go from there. I mean you could get a decent working gun for around 700 to several thousand dollars.

If I can have a nice set up below a thousand, I think I will be happy. Not picky with triggers and stuff since I am a beginner and have nothing to compare. But I think a very good upper is most important. I have this bushnell red dot which I would like to install but it may be for a .22lr.

M4 clone sound like the way to go for me, collapsable stock and rails. Add a red dot and I think I am good to go.

Any combo that meets your needs and works. Unless you want to pay for the Gucci-stuff, Mil-Spec like KD, YHM, CMMG, and Noveske are all good and seem to run fine.
