    I think the whole thing is geared for the adaptation to the 5.56 lower . You know the miracle platform !

    Just give me a quality bonded 55-75 gr pill pushed to NATO spec and I'm happy.

    Federal bonded 55 gr TRU will expand past 300 yards with an M4, 250 yards from a 10.3 inch MK18.

    Now that I think about it M193 ain't no slouch either

    "Clearly, the round would appeal to deer hunters who live in straight-wall states, mainly in the Midwest where this type of cartridge is allowed.
    By design, the range is limited to 250 yards. Many of the states that now allow straight-wall cartridges for deer didnít allow (or severely restricted) centerfire hunting because of concerns of high-power bullet overtravel. That was part of the appeal of limited-range muzzleloaders and slug guns."

    Definitely a niche cartridge. A .35 Remington loaded to the same pressure would probably be more powerful. I don't see how its range could be limited to 250 yards; effective range, perhaps, but an elevated shot is still going to go a long ways down range.

    Ballistics are a 150 gr bullet at 2325 ft/sec and a 180 gr bullet at 2100 ft/sec.
    There were a lot worse places than Phu Bai and they weren't all in Viet Nam.

    Huh? Go figure, they reinvented 300 black...

    The old 35 rem killed a lot of deer around these parts.
