Heard about a new Caliber being experimented with by Pentagon......US Army....to replace 5.56. Any info?
Stoner's first design was the AR10( an AR in 308). He had to chage the caliber to something smaller because with all the lightweight materials he used on itmade the recoil too mucharoostookbasser said:Thanks ................. Just so much misinformation out there about it. I agree that if they were looking for an intermediate round they have much to choose from. I'm sure they can find a round that already exists......but will it work as the 6.8 was intended to. In other words.....can they just swap uppers to change it over and still use the M16 magazines?
Am I wrong or didn't Armalite offer an M16 variant in .308........how was that to control in full auto.......remembering that in ARMY terms full auto is 3 shot bursts...........not pull back until the clip is gone.( Would porting help reduce the ill nature of full auto?)
