    This is an excellent arguement as to why the AR is THE perfect multi caliber hunting platform!!!! I would love to deer hunt with one of these!

    Hmm. Would something like this possibly work as a conversion for an XCR or ACR?

    Cool new shotgun idea. If they produced a standalone shotgun I would be very tempted to buy it.

    That looks way too cool. Most interesting thing from SHOT 2013 so far!

    I wonder how powerful the ammunition is in comparison to 12ga?

    The video posted above mentions that it operates at the same pressure as regular 12 gauge, so basically no.

    It's kind of too bad, I know they wanted to operate within the mechanical constraints of the AR-10 platform, and to use as many existing components as possible, but IMO the shotshell needs a velocity upgrade as much as it needed to be modified to be box magazine feed friendly, for it to remain viable as a dedicated fighting system.

    Anyways, I wonder how these shells would do in a double format?

    Wow, take that Saga.

    I take solace in military tactics because they emphasize teamwork and working with others.

    It will all come down to the cost and availability of their new ammo.

    If they're smart, they will sell the ammo at a loss for the first little while.

    After everyone already has these guns, then they can let the ammo price creep up slowly.
