Confirmed: US Army Ditching 5.56mm for 6.8mm in New Weapon Systems

Recommended Posts

All the military had to do was replace the barrels and bolt with the 6.8 Grendel and get new magazines and it would save a lot of money!

I saw somewhere a 25-45...i cant think of it more but I remember it had good ballistics.

I built a 25-45 AR-15 when the barrels came out by the Sharps Rifle company. It is my favorite deer hunting round and I have killed several deer with it! It is a 223/5.56 case necked up to a 25 caliber bullet! All is needed to change out on the AR-15/M-4 rifles is the barrel! Bolt and magazines are the same! A very flat shooting, a deadly accurate round that shoots accurate to 600 yards.

I wonder what third world country is going to get all the "outdated" M4s and M249s, as well as all the stockpiled ammo? I'm still miffed on B-O dumping all those Garands into the Pacific.

Probably not too many NATO countries as the US will want them to jump onto the 6.8mm band wagon.  They will probably go to the future Venezuela Conservative People's Army.

Hmmm...  What about the 1.5 BILLION rounds the government bought for police, homeland security  etc., a few years ago?  Looks like ammo prices will drop some more!!  Yippee!!! 

I doubt that police or DHS will switch anytime soon. Probably the opposite if there's a large surplus of 5.56 ammo and rifles. There's also a good possibility that the other branches won't switch right away if at all, as can be seen with the shotguns. 

 

It'll be interesting to see if they carry through with it. It may end up becoming another XM8.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
