It's time for manufacturers to start building rifles chambered in 6.8x51

It's time for manufacturers to start building rifles chambered in 6.8x51

The ammo prices have dropped to a reasonable level. It's a military caliber, the rifles will sell.

      >6k for a 7.62 spear
      And I guarantee a SCAR, LMT, KAC, or nearly any other 7.62 BR blows it out of the water.

      The actual MSRP is around $4200

      Just because you CAN buy it from scalpers for $6k doesn't mean that's what it SHOULD cost.

            Yeah I agree with

            I wouldn't pay more than $2k for it

            I wouldn't pay more than 2k maybe like 1200 is more realistic though

    I suspect its going to be a hard sell until they have the exact specs for the full house military loadings. Lawyers won't let them sell a gun that will pipe bomb after you shoot grey market special ammo.

    Because if the rifles are built to handle the non-cucked loads with a decent service life, they'll be too heavy. And if they aren't, people are going to drag the rifles for being pieces of shit.

      >too heavy
      Literally no one has said this about the XM7

        It's one of the lighter battle rifles of its caliber range (6.5CM/7.62) though I don't think it is THE lightest weight one. But none of the other 7.62/6.5CM rifles on the market are built for the 80k PSI loads that .277 fury supposedly is.

        Too heavy if they're expected to have a decent service life. 5k rounds is PSA-tier lifespan. Which is why the army will mostly be using cuck loads until they go into combat

    It's a bimetallic cartridge that generates 100,000 fricking PSI. The felt recoil will be horrendous, as will the wear and tear on working internals, and you won't be able to reload it. Plus it's expensive. At risk of sounding like a fudd, I think I'll stick with the Cold War cartridge, sonny.

      >100,000 fricking PSI
      AFAIK, the chamber pressure is more like 80-85k PSI

      They make normal pressure loads for this caliber, they're actually the majority of the rounds on the market.
