    Could it be they were going back to 7.62 uppers with specialized, lightweight cartridges?

    What now? Arm every boot with an RPG and 2 grenades, one loaded, and bigger uniform pockets they may stuff more rocks into to throw at the enemy?
    A new round that looks really good it's more powerful then the 5.56 and has good weight and size for carry, a better choice then the 7.62x51 or the 7.62x39 used in the AK47. It's the 300 Blackout. Lots of reviews on it just Google them.
