SIG Offering Army 6.8 Round to the Public - .277 Fury

The Army is currently pursuing a new 6.8 round in experimental testing and there are three different companies chosen for competition for the Next Generation Rifle and Light Machinegun. The Army has required a specific 6.8mm EPR projectile (basically a 6.8mm version of the projectile used in M855A1) and set some classified performance requirements for it.

(Past discussion of Army solicitation and caliber: https://thefiringline.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=602725)

SIG is announcing a new bolt-action rifle in a caliber they call “.277 Fury” which uses the same bimetallic case SIG is using in the Army trials. SIG is stating they are getting 3,000fps out of a 16” barrel with a 6.8mm bullet of unspecified weight.
