U.S. Army looking for a new rifle... [View all]

I ran across this tidbit today on the RealClearDefense website:
http://warisboring.com/the-u-s-army-wants-a-more-powerful-rifle/

and here is the RFI they submitted to industry:
https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&tab=core&id=f19586d13f3072ad831ac8863fe6bcf8&_cview=0

Evidently the Army is finally admitting that a 5.56 caliber rifle is under-powered for today's combat environment. That should come as a shock to all the gun haters who continually decry the easy availability of - and I quote - "high-powered assault-style rifles" in the commercial market.

I guess next they'll come after "high-powered assault-style" Mosin-Nagant, Enfield, Mauser, and Springfield '03 rifles...
