    Hey Dave,

    300 winmag? Is this the new rifle's chambering? I didn't see anything about a specific chambering in the article...

    Who builds that rifle for the Army? Apologies if I missed it in the article, I just have a hard time concentrating on USA Today!

    the barrett is ungodly heavy- not overly practicle for carrying all the time, especially at the altitudes on the border.

  9. The M107A1 is 6 pounds lighter than the M82A3.
