This reminds me of a discussion I had with an old Marine some years ago. He had fought in Korea and Vietnam, but the discussion was about Korea. I had asked him what weapon he had preferred back then, and his answer was not what I expected. He said he used the weapon that fit his needs for that day/moment/mission. Sometimes he’d carry an M1, and sometimes a carbine, sometimes other weapons, including Chinese SMGs.

Obviously no one weapon covered all the bases for him.

As for today’s needs, I think we need something with a little more grunt than the 5.56, but I have no suggestions any better than what others have mentioned. That said, what would a necked down 30AR cartridge do?
