    As for mgs they are settling around the 6.5 replacing 7.62, and .338 Norma mag replacing .50 big.
    The 6.5CM was not selected. You should read the articles I posted.

    There's been so much voodoo and BS spread about the magic of the 6.5CM over the last five or ten years it's nauseating.

    It's a middle of the road, mild recoiling 6.5, it doesn't do anything special and it doesn't do anything other 6.5's weren't already doing as well or better.

    ...Testing has shown that this 6.5mm round actually offers increased range over the various 7.62x51mm cartridges that are available to the U.S. special operations community now.
    There is limited information about the SPUR available now, but The War Zone has already reached out to Ghost Robotics for more information. Ghost Robotics says that SPUR is capable of precision fire out to 1,200 meters, or nearly 3,940 feet. This unmanned system already features impressive stabilization capabilities simply as a result of its quadrupedal design.

    Talk about the hounds of hell.
    This has night vision, a suppressor, and is chambered in a round excellent for long range precision.
    I can see these accompanying special ops troops, acting as sentries, etc.
    4 legs mean the dog is more stable than a tripod for machine gun use.

    I could also see it used in night assaults.
