We all know how the 270 WIN drops deer & elk sized game & now it will win wars for us also.
There was the legend that a ranking member of the original selection group was an avid .270 hunter and pushed for the caliber in lieu of 6.5 or 7mm.

The AR platform is ideal in this role
What are we going to get, then, an AR in a different caliber? I had hopes for the Textron system.

Operations now are relatively small, we could afford a golf bag system to furnish a variety of infantry weapons to suit the need.

There is also the image of elitism; CO 1 to CO 2, "My troops are more eliter than yours 'cause we got fancier guns."
