More than likely, after millions ... or billions of dollars spent, they will come to the same conclusion as you ... I find it amazing that people like this Brig. Gen. Anthony Potts can't talk to actual shooters before starting starting such ventures.
If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
All of my 6.8 (5) are as accurate as my .223 and more accurate than my 5.56 ARs. I think this will be a larger case, maybe the .277 USA which is between 5.56 and .308 in OAL. I think it's around 2.4".This message has been edited. Last edited by: ed308,
.5 MOA with ARP barrels. PSA and LWRC barrels are slightly larger with my 6.8s. My reloads of course. But Federal's FMJ is .75. And S&B's is slightly smaller.This message has been edited. Last edited by: ed308,

That’s the same reason that they switched the MHS from 9mm. Oh, wait, never mind.

Shit like this bugs the hell out of me. "The 9mm doesn't score high with soldier feedback." Yeah, because they asked Sgt Bucktooth from Lubbock, TX who never unholstered his pistol once in combat, and in his civilian life, only owns .45's because that's "a real mans boolit"!
Its the same deal with the 5.56, people who have no clue what they're talking about spouting off "facts" that they've heard as though they have personal experience. In my years as a Marine, I cannot count the number of times I have heard "5.56 is too tiny of a bullet for combat!", "The M9 is a terrible pistol!", and "9mm is a weak round, we should have .45s!".
another waste of taxpayers money....
stick with NATO ammo
spend money on more live fire training

Despite all the daysayers, the benefit of much lighter ammo is a big plus. Also the enemy will not have spent brass cases to rework.

oojima in this house!
I think the only thing they could really improve would be range. Military ball is military ball. I would think a heavy long .25 caliber would be better.
TCB all the time...
