    The most interesting aspect of the RMR is that a relatively small company is able to produce reliably expanding JHPs for 1 penny more then basic FMJ:

    30 SC was released with much fanfare, then basically nothing.

    This the first actual review I've seen with chronograph numbers, plus the debatable but always amusing 'meat test.'

    Heres another barrel length velocity test; sadly it does not include some of the more important SD ammo loads like the Gold Dot 124gr/ +p.

    JHP SD ammo is gaining ~ +50fps from G19/45-->G34 length....

    If running a full size WML, I think G34 is the correct answer, as the X300/TLR1/TLR9 are all G34 length.

    The AUG is extremely proven; I suspect in 3rd place to the AR/AK in terms of service history and combat employment of an assault rifle.

    Per the ACR, both the ammo and the rifle would have been a good bit cheaper then the M16/5.56

    Here's the ACR report that details how all of the rifles performed, with detailed analysis on the G11 as well. TL;DR - the G11 and other ACR candidates had markedly worse hit probability then the M16...

    I agree, the technology is super promising and would really shine in a 5.56-6mm zone weapon.

    But the 6.8 rifle...I suspect will prove similar to the M14.

    Whatís really wild is that at 65kpsi, TVs 6.8 is the lowest powered entrant. SIG is running itís similar sized case at 80kpsi, and Textrons CT is rumored to be in the 80-100kpsi range.

    They're showing 150gr for SAAMI, but the load they have been showing around for the last few years (most recently in a great Guns and Ammo feature story) is a 135gr @ 3000fps from a ~20" barrel....

    Great find, that does look really cool. Like the DWX, but hopefully actually entering production. The biggest drawback to 2011s is the $100, dubiously reliable mags, so a 2011 type pistol that runs...

    The closest design competitor I'm aware of is the Wilson EDC X9, which starts at $2999, so as odd as it seems, $1500 is economy for this sort of pistol.

    Kind of an interesting question is how much mass is needed, and how much does it differ from a standard LCP?

    LCP II = 10.6oz

    KelTec PF9 = 12.6oz

    Diamondback DB9 = 13.4oz

    I'm not sure where its niche would be in competition, just that it seems like Federal believes it has a future in competition based on their 30sc thesis.

    Thats exactly my take - they're going to try to convince the major rulebooks to allow 30SC. Which frankly doesn't seem unreasonable so long as it makes a given power factor.

    This is from Federals patent on 8mm/30SC.

    So they do believe they will be able to both create slimmer frames and increase capacity.
