Isn't UKLandPower Drummond's blog?

 

Yes that is an article he wrote promoting HK rifles in Creedmoor and Creedmoor as a fallback in case 6.8GP fails.

 

Oh, and that the Creedmoor projectile being adopted by SOCOM was an EPR developed for the 6.5 Textron carbine.

 

Edit: as a bonus, 5.56 was a fallback for SPIW

As a side note, the US can no longer claim that M855A1 fragments by accident. "A noteworthy feature of the fielding of M855A1 is the inclusion of the terminal effects protocol for testing soft target performance during lot acceptance testing to ensure Soldiers are getting consistent ammunition. The M855A1 is the first round to undergo such a rigorous test during lot acceptance." (An Army Outgunned-A Response Anonymous. Military Review; Fort Leavenworth Vol. 92, Iss. 6, (Nov/Dec 2012): 102-103.) Not that we ever should have, mind. Bullets exist to kill, we gain nothing by being bashful about it.

@Donward is writing for the NRA now?

In (semi) defense, I used to know an armed guard who carried a K frame S&W in .32-20.

Famous for drilling an armed robber across a (large) bank lobby, between the eyes, single action.

He drew, thumbed back the hammer, and  punched the guy's ticket.

 

Now, chances are you see some goof with a SAA, he's a poser. But in some places, he may be just challenging himself.

I know one guy who CC's a cap& ball Remington, I'd not want to fuck with, at anything under 50 yards. (Preferably at 1000+ yards, so I can use a BREN).

Greetings comrade Belesarius!

 

Do I repost the links to the PK/PKM manuals in the repository thread?

Thank God, a new Canadian. 

 

Our last one has gotten stale.

After he has visited a friendly re-education center, he will be a new Canadian as well...

Hi, I'm Nicholas. I'm a strategic consultant based in London, UK.

I started my professional career in the British Army and served as an infantry platoon commander the Welsh Guards during the 1980s

After seven years of military service, I became an Advertising Copywriter. Over a 10-year period in the 1990s, I worked for Publicis, M&C Saatchi and Ogilvy & Mather.

My love of Marketing, Strategy and Communication led me to the world of consulting. I worked at McKinsey & Company, London before establishing my first company, Fusion Marketing Ltd. I set-up my second and present company, Aura Consulting Ltd., in 2013 and have now been a strategic consultant for almost 20 years.

I am passionate about all things military and specialise in helping Defence Industry clients across their most important strategic priorities. I'm a Defence commentator with an interest in Government policy and related aspects of defence politics and the geopolitical landscape. You can follow me via Twitter and my blog UK Land Power.

Quite likely his service end just before the L85 put into service or just as it was being put into service...
(Which could explain his bias in favor of thurdy cal and/or his bias against SCHV?)

Correct, he served with the L1A1. I've had extensive conversations with him via email and he is pretty insistent on a projectile weight of at least 90 grains/6 grams.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
