    Not happy with the 6.8 decision, should be a 6.5 round. Much better BC on the 6.5 bullets.

    Another story about replacing the M4 using a 6.8mm round.

    Army moving forward with new 6.8mm round, platforms to replace M4, M249

    So 60 Minutes does a piece on how devastating the .223/ 5.56x45 is but the Army decides that more money needs to be spent on a larger round. Only if it truly helps our service personnel is it worth it.
