It looks like Sig has thrown their hat in the ring for the new military weapon. I’m impressed.

Sounds noteworthy, but using hybrid ammo seems odd. So, if a multi national effort is taking place, will we expect others to follow suit for the interchangeability ...

6.8x51 sounds potent.

It does, is it my imagination Kenny, but that suppressor looks a little hot at 3:15 or so in the vid.

I'm not for isolationism but, we need to stand on our own a bit more. If this round would replace both 5.56x45 and 7.62x51 it could be a logistics boon.

That looks awesome. Hopefully it will be issued to units by the time the next Sequestration is emplaced by Biden.

Love the 6.8spc i have the round is a .277 just like the 270 win just lighter. So 6.8x51, a 6.8 thats as long as a 308 win, interesting. Think the 6.5x51 would have made a better choice due to ballistics the .264 bullet has, but that would basically be a 6.5 creed or 260 rem.

Im just pissed cause i know i cant buy one. freaking nfa rules.

Maybe you can talk Sig into placing a MFG date of April 30,1986 on it...........

I aint got that kinda pull, but i can dream i guess. Id settle for an m60 or m134 with a truckload of ammo for them......like semi truck that is.

Sounds like the idea caliber for a squad level auto. I know Sig did purchase additional property in NH and sounds like this may be one of the reasons to grow.
