    I thought they scrapped this idea a couple years ago. Then they went off on a new caliber program. Hard to keep up with military thinking.

      I think that is only the sniper rifle. The regular issue rifle/round had to be improved because the 5.56 would not defeat personnel armor plates.

          Yeah, it makes sense to have at least one gun ... er weapon ... in each squad that is actually capable of killing people. There will be a lack of uniformity in field ammo but the troops seemed to handle that okay during WWII.
