Aren't these rifles just like any other AR, meaning that any AR10 upper should be able to be mated to the lower?

i think there are 2 types of "ar10" uppers/lowers

I was told the Reciever of the Rem R-25 was made by DPMS so I was wondering if the uppers would interchange. will probably have to Call DPMS and ask them.
Ok you are a bit mixed up. DPMS doesnt make AR-10s. They are known as .308 ARs/LR-308s. So to be a bit more general lets call them DPMS .308 ARs. The R-25 is a DPMS patterened .308 AR with the Remington name on it. DPMS patterned rifles do NOT take AR-10 mags. They take what is called SR-25 styled mags, named after the mags that the KAC SR-25 rifle uses.
That being said, The uppers WILL interchange since they are of the same platform. But again, they are NOT AR-10s. Those are Armalite patterned rifles, and yes they do take different mags (except for Hesse?)

The only compatibility with ar10s are
and a couple other doodads here and there.
DPMS can take stoner mags, ie sr25 or mk11. Not all interchangable like ar-15s.
