    I thought the military was adopting the m110 SASS for faster follow up shots with the 7.62, the 300wm and 338 lapua for further bolt action shots? Maybe the Marines are just dragging their feet?

    The M110 sucks a bag of dicks.

    Plenty of SOF elements are using 300 and 338s, but the USMC is generally stuck with hand-me-downs.

    Dear Mr.Cumia,

    The US Government would like you to donate some of your Ammunition and Firearms to the Marine Corps.

    Sincerely,

    Inept US Defense Department.

    P.S. We're unable to kill off what equates to yokels, as we use the most advanced Military in the entire history of Planet Earth.
