6.8 mm ammo
« on: December 12, 2018, 15:57:31 »
More lethal and weighs less. The 5.6 round has been with us for fifty years and people have hated it the whole time. I like the M16 and the round. If special ops want a heavier bullet, fine but the whole force doesn't need to. In the old days we used 7.6 in small arms and crew served weapons then we changed to save weight. Actually there is a case to be made for the RGP added to our squads.
