5.56x45 was distinctly ineffective in windy Afghanistan past the first few hundred meters of transit, hence the increasing use of 308 within the first few months. The M14 is a decent DMR, but less-than-perfect battle rifle at higher fire rates compared to floating barrels. The exception to 308 generally becoming the go-to was compared to like the 300 & 338 magnums at even longer ranges or the 308 having trouble against just moderate body armor past 500 meters. Though there was some, improvised body armor was not a huge issue in Afghanistan, and unless you're a sniper, you couldn't fully exploit the magnum rifles. 308-chambered M110 was also almost exclusively being used by marksmen and snipers. The new move to .277 is related to near-peer adversaries, not GWOT 'arid' wars. If we weren't concerned with body armor past 500 meters, we'd be sticking to intermediate 308 with its superior subsonic options.
magazines, with the other 50 rnd drum it works fine.
