    I read about the HK-11 caseless in 1989.

    The only other fad I don't think has been debunked yet is the "flechette". 3mm super-strong tungsten darts fired at velocities past 5000 fps. Designed for extreme penetration factor.

    Last I read (about 1991), they had been testing at Aberdeen Proving Grounds with rifles they claimed could be modified from existing M16s.

    I thought that would be pretty neato, but haven't heard anything since.

    good, thoughtful question...

    maybe some sort of "smart" bullet that works along the same lines as laser-guided bombs...

    What do you predict will be the next fad in rifle cartridges? We have done long and skinny, short and fat and long and fat. Electronic ignition has also been tried by Remington and others as have caseless cartridges. These two types sort of fizzled if you will pardon the pun... So, what will it be ray guns or a return to the classics?

Welcome!
