    Armed forces changing ammo?

    If this article is accurate, mil surp 5.56 may be a thing of the past in the very near future. Not sure if they’re hinting at 6.8 SPC or another version of that round using way different materials. Whatever the case (pun!), I’m keeping my ears open for whatever opportunity might present itself as a result.

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct it———

    Not only changing ammo but the firearm as well.

    I feel like they have been saying this for the past 15 years.

    With all the 5.56mm weapons in service, ammo will be available for a looooong time.

    I really hope they do change platforms fast. Then our AR’s can’t be labeled as weapons of war.

    Famous last words...?
    I’m sure companies will load it for years to come. Military surplus is s little different market tho.

    I'm glad they're going with a larger caliber I couldn't imagine them going smaller than 5.56/223.
