New materials, ammo construction have made this weapon lighter. New recoil mitigation designs have made this have the same recoil as a 5.56mm, while increasing effective range and stopping power.For a guy who likes ships because I don't have to carry my own stuff around with me, what does that mean?
Is the 6.8 more pew than a 5.56 and less pew than a 7.62? Does it pew farther? Faster? Can you better pew things at a distance than a pew-ier 7.62, with more pew than a 5.56? Can I continue to find new and stupid ways to work pew into a dumb question?
Most importantly, how much of a badass will I feel like not hitting a barn at 100 yards with that on full auto?
In a serious note, is this going to become a more common NATO standard round? It thought part of the reason for standardized rounds was to help with shared logistics, but maybe that's not a big deal when you are they US Army.
