Constructor and Nativeman are correct.

I’ve been one of those guys. And I still work with those guys. The payload hasn’t gotten any lighter. The new LBV (equivalent) is lighter, but is offset and overtaken by the increased weight of armor, NOD/thermal and comm load. Everything they use now takes a battery, and while battery tech has grown exponentially, they’re still heavy. Heavy enough and in quantity enough to offset everything else. The last thing they need is heavier, and therefore reduced, ammo.
I feel they’re looking for an answer to a problem that has been solved by 6.8SPC/M855A1 and/or Mk318 Mod 0. This is a mistake.
But what do I know? I’m just a washed up grunt on the internet enjoying too much bourbon on Turkey day.
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.
