From a comment on post Numero Uno:
Anyway, my company currently has a deep hole drilling machine on the shop floor that is due to be delivered to H&K in Dec. I presume that we will be drilling XM8 barrels in their new facility in georgia early next year. This machine has the capability of running 4 barrels at a time and is a production type machine. A little expensive and large for small batches. It would appear that like it or not the XM8 will soon be the M8.
Well, we all figure that the XM8 is going ahead. And we all figure that we’re pretty happy with it. But we also all figure that the 5.56 just isn’t the answer.
Do we have a consensus on that?
