I was just looking at chamberings I might buy, or which people I'd spoken to really liked.

5.56 NATO is obvious.

300 AAC Blackout is popular with people who want a bigger bullet but like the idea of suppressing.

I keep hearing about how quiet but accurate 9mm in an AR-15 is, and the ammunition is very cheap.

6.5mm Grendel is pretty popular for people who wanted a bigger bang and make bigger holes. Usually in my experience the same people call 5.56 a varmint round.

7.62x39mm is also cheap, and popular as an intermediate cartridge.

The last two are for the crazy thumper adherents, I'm not sure why I'd get one but they seem popular.
