    This symposium was held earlier this month. The Web site holds many articles (mostly in PowerPoint format, using the presenters' slide shows) about current and future developments in military weapons (including a rather awesome 25mm. round under development by Barrett - take that, .50 BMG! :D ). You'll find the articles here.

    You'll need a PowerPoint viewer to access most of them. This can be downloaded free from Microsoft here.

    Have fun! There's hours of viewing/reading if you do the whole thing.

    Oh man, Preacherman, you're GREAT! Thanks for this post! I'm doing a presentation on current small arms developments, focusing on rifle, at the Origins War College program at the Origins War Gaming Con in a few weeks and I can really use some of that info. I've been trying to get info from the manufacturers, but it's been hard to get past the pure PR stuff.

    Got anything good on current U.S. sniper tactics? I'm also doing a presentation on U.S. sniper programs in the 20th and 21th Century.

    Still chasing after the AMR, huh? Crane had a working prototype ramped up in the late '80s. 25mm, 22mm, 20mm, just make a ^&%#@! decision and let our boys have it.

    *aaahhh* Sorry, needed to say that.:)
