the m14 also shoots an obsolite round sure you should have a one shot kill but you dont need that much fire power to get it i would go with the 6.8mm
It's a good weapon, but not as an infantry weapon.

I wonder where your old-school hardcore grunts were to be found in the last century´s wars up to after the Vietnam conflict... remember, those were fought by drafted troops... I dont want to flame you, but this post seems like a severe case of "good-old-times" syndrome
There were valid reasons not to continue with the M14s, and they are still valid today.
