Yep.. looks like a nice upper. I think ADDAX's 6.8 GPU comes in under that don't they, with the piston installed?

Rainier Arms carries nice gear, and has kept their lowers priced decently during this mad rush.
I just read a couple articles about the AMU and the DMR rifles. Those uppers maximize the 5.56's performance, so just think if they deployed a 6.8 version of the same. One of the articles mentioned the MK 262 ammo works well on terrorists but the barrier penetration falls short. It seems the 6.8 would improve on the concept.
