I did not notice how heavily lubed was the bolt carrier, but it was impossible to miss the carbon deposit on the cartridges.

how come the energy is listed as 3200 ft lbs. This is way beyond the 2700 listed for 6.8, and surely its massively overbore too.

in terms of a 7mm magnum for machine guns, could you some how make it work without barrel wear issues?

Another interesting thing is the additional lens in front of the main scope.

I know that FN Herstal is working on a similar but more complex device, with a Bluetooth connection to a FN Elity ballistic computer, so the lens is working like a "HUD", showing all the information from the Elity, including real-time reticle corrections depending on the range / atmosphere / wind.

This way, you can transform any existing scope into a XM157...

So almost like an aimbot. When the generell issue rifle of the troops get some sort of this optic. Let's say m5/M7 Is happening with that kinda optic..... There isn't a need for a DMR anymore or am I wrong?

For me, a "fully dressed" M7 (with scope & suppressor) is already a DMR, just because of the >6.5 kg weight and reduced ammo capability.

Why?  It's clear that >6.5 kg weight and 20-rd magazine capacity are not what makes a rifle a DMR.
