"The US Army's Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW), will soon begin its next round of testing. The US Army is looking to replace the M4 Carbine, M249 SAW, and M240 machine gun as well as the 5.56x45mm and 7.62x51mm rounds with a more lethal cartridge with a longer range. The US Army wants infantry and Special Operations units to field a new weapon starting in 2023.

Great! I'm still getting used to the 55.6 and now I have to get comfortable with a new round in my dotage.

Sounds more expensive, ammo wise. But I like the look and ability to have more power
