    Reading over the SOW it looks to me like they are looking for some type of caseless ammo SAW. It mentions desire to have ammo 20 percent lighter that brass ammo. David

    Did they learn nothing from the G11 project? 20 percent lighter is meaningless when your squad support weapon fails from overheating or starts cooking off rounds unintentionally. Never mind the various overly complex ignition systems related to caseless ammo as discovered by Voere.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Textron claims to have addressed the weight issue with their case telescoped round, but the tradeoff (reportedly) is higher cost:

    They are going to figure out the heavy ammo issue, right when robot ammo bearers come on line....

    The thing with telescoped rounds is that, while apparently it's a weight reduction, it looks like it's an increase in bulk. They look like small gauge shotgun rounds.
