    for firing, yes, otherwise no. I haven’t fired it but it seems to work very similarly to all other firearms in this regard

    If you want a medium machine gun that weighs only a little more than last-generation LMGs, then sure. The LWMMG is amazing if you want a portable high-caliber MG with similar ballistics to .50 BMG but half the weight.

      is it feasible to shoulder fire it with ADS considering its approximately 20lbs?

        for an emergency, yeah.

        Wouldn't ever do it if it could be avoided though.

    I'd rather get random 10 woman pregnant and deal with the child support than shoot that thing.

        If I'm going to actively make myself poor, I'd rather get a few nuts off while doing so.

      311,000 rounds for $3,818,000.

      Works out to a little over $12.25 per round.

        Only slightly worse for FY23

        355,000 rounds for $4,400,000, or $12.39/rd

        I'm in the military, and I still think it's atrocious that we give this thing the okay.

        Almost absurd considering how cheap .50 BMG is in comparison.

        What exactly is the XM1162 though?

        From what I can find, it is considered an armor-piercing round, but is it using a tungsten or a depleted uranium penetrator (in which case, $12/rd is cheap), or is it using a hardened steel ($12/rd is expensive for this) bullet or some other hardened alloy that is cheaper than tungsten/DU but more expensive than traditional hardened steel.

        If its armor-piercing characteristics are good enough, $12/rd isn't actually a bad deal at all. You can't directly compare it to .50BMG ball or .300NM ball as they're not armor-piercing rounds.

          Your Google-fu is weak. Here is a link to a draft version of the spec.

    Last I checked, post-86 full auto is for very specific .mil or LE use (LMAO imagine SWAT with an LMG). Unless you are outside the USA, or you have a plan to convert a preban LMG to .338. Though I guess if you can afford the LMG, you can afford the ammo and the conversion.

      If you have the money you just start your own company that develops machine guns (just submit a design for military trials every decade or two and no one will care)

      Then you just play with your machine guns that are owned by your company and you use them as an employee doing "tests". That way you don't have to own it personally or have it be pre-86.

        It used to be waaaay easier to get that SOT. Now, the ATF are asking lots of questions like: are you actually doing business eith the feds? Sucks for innovation because it's soft-locking out new competitors.

          Yeah, that's why I said you actually have to design SOMETHING and submit it for government/military trials occasionally.
