So what's your take on this
Seen this and thought dam 300% more energy? That would be really impressive if true but I would guess the pressure would be crazy high and some new metal would have to be used to handle it.
IF Textron can build a rifle that is reliable and inexpensive, and IF the Army accepts the design tradeoffs inherent in the telescoped design, it could be the first all-new rifle design fielded by the Army in 51 years.
Coupla big IFs there.
Ok...so the 6.5 has 300 percent more energy than the existing 5.56 round. How does it compare to the similarly sized 308 round.
Also, i hope those bullets like jump.
Innovation is good. The benefits are not always immediate and not always direct. New ideas are constantly shunned these days, and that sucks.
I say, the more innovation the better. If it's not perfect, someone else might have a better idea because of it!
