Why would they discontinue it and what 7mm are they testing? Where did you hear this?

Hmmm.. I'm not surprised about the bullpup though. But what's with 7mm?

I heard this from an employee of bushmaster.I thought the same thing why 7mm.

Well the ad does say exciting new products,I was just hoping for 6.8.

Thats wierd, what 7mm platform are they going with, if it's true?

Perhaps they are just talking the 7mm-08. Barrel extension, bolt, magazine would all be the same. I have been building the 7mm-08 on the AR-10 platform for years. Where it is no where near as popular, nation wide, as the .308, I can't imagine that they would do it.

Or perhaps by 7mm they mean 6.8 but are calling it something else for whatever reason. Like with the various names for the .300 Whisper. Or Alexander Arms calling 5.45x39mm .21 Ghengis.

Can we say this rumor was just "owned"?
