I have no military understanding but

from a simple procurement standpoint it seems folly and unrealistic to me. The .30 cal arm has been with us since 1896 for the U.S. Army, I don't see that changing too much in one form or another. Look at the M2 .50!

I do understand the idea and concept though. The Mexicans and Swedes had the ballistic best military arms ever made. The 7X57 and 6.5X55, but those went on to become supreme hunting rounds rather than stellar military rounds. Both kick a lot less than the .30-06/.308 and shoot flatter, hit harder at distance. The military does not have to make sense, just work around a budget.
