Main point being that as far as I can tell there's not much performance against body armor reasons to switch caliber as long as you're staying between .223 and .30-06.

The 6.5 round especially with a fast twist really penetrates well. Couple that with modern bullet design and it might be just what we need to defeat modern armor, It would be worth looking at. A friend of mine now passed was a WWII vet and said when people were hit with the 30-06 they dropped dead right there and were dead before hitting the ground.
What doesn't kill me better start running.
