Mostly just a press release from a company. But 6.8mm, which I think we already knew, and a nifty composite casing

I saw that, but I wasn't sure if it was true. They have been discuss 6.8mm SAW for a while. Not sure how a composite case makes it better regardless of what the manufacturer says.
The border between civilization and savagery is porous and patrolled by opportunists. Resist fascism. Vote like your democracy depends on it.

First of all, good to see that someone else follows SoldierSystems.

Secondly, as I recall, someone (FN?) announced production of a test batch of ammo in the same caliber a few months ago so as everyone else said, we should reserve judgement until a large-scale weapon order is given. Then wait to see how that actually works before we "assume" .
