Subject: 2009 LSAT update (possible future for the 6.5mm Grendel concept?)
Jeff_F_F    9/29/2009 7:13:58 PM
After spending the summer of 2008 haunting the NDIA website, I got complacent this year and let Mr. Dunningan beat me too the punch... Ah well, here is the 2009 slideshow on the Lightweight Small Arms Technologies program. Fans of the Grendel should check out page 13, where the effectiveness over range of a 120gr 6.5mm round is compared to 5.56mm and 7.62mm rounds. Interesting. It should be noted though that the long 5.56mm round that some of us were noticing in the slides last year is probably the standard 5.56mm tracer ammunition.

Found it.
There was this article I was thinking was in Army Times some weeks ago,
but turns out, it was in National Defense Magazine's August 2009 edition, see the article here.

Those DTIC/NDIA links can be tricky,
especially if they link to a pdf and you don't have sh*t-for-bandwidth for a connection speed.
Your best bet is just going over to the mainpage index (...if it works, here ) and just manually browsing through...
