    I wonder what this will mean for the commodity of "military" cartridges such as 5.56? o_O Will prices go down because of surplus and/or manufacturers not changing over assembly lines to the "new" calibers? Or will prices go up because of line switchover to the new calibers? Or is this just a fad? :D

    Any time that the military shoots something, the market usually gets pretty saturated, and prices aren't too bad.

    Reference 9mm, 223, etc.

    6.5?
    Color me in.
    I was going to build a .308 precision rifle but the Army just changed my mind.
