The new M110A1 will be an HK417 variant.

OMG! That is stunning. A little embarrassing that in the list of other contracts they list the SA80 upgrade fix. (Cringe).

So, the rifle being made in Germany but accessories bolted on in the US qualifies as made in the US for the contract??

or has that requirement gone away??
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.

H&K built(or is still building?) a factory in the US for the sole purpose of competing for these contracts, I imagine most of the work will be done in the US plant. But I don't really follow these things, thats just what I read a while back, so who am I to say?
