This is not very accurate. the 5.56MM is a very nasty round.. it really puts the enemy in a lot of pain if they are not killed.. it is also easier to transport. But hey the russians were really stupid in adopting the even weaker 5.45MM round.

Also the 7.62MM clip is very cumbersome.

The XM8 will become the best military rifle in the world.. there is no doubt about it.

The guy didn't even have to use two hands to hold it to fire.

And that'll give those stupid iraqi insurgents something more to piss in their pants about. Especially that 100 round drum magazine..
