I won't be surprised if it happens this time around. Reasoning, the 5.56 round can't defeat enemy body armor and it's lethality at longer ranges is a joke. And greater range is where our soldiers are fighting their battles. There also seems to be more of a desire and agreement change is needed. Nothing will happen before 2020. That's when the prototype rifle are suppose to be ready. It won't be the 7.62 cartridge since that is just band-aid until a new cartridge and rifle is selected. Whatever is selected, it will likely be a AR style rifle that is in between the AR15 and AR10.
