The Remington Etronx is supposed to be a varmint rifle but I wouldn't use it for anything other than targets.
It has the advantage of a very short locktime but reliablity will always be a problem. Ammo is very hard to find and seems to be loaded too deep, I don't see why it's not like you will fire it in another factories gun.
BTW: The cutting edge forum is about knives, not new developments:D
Electronic rifles are gonna get results for some, but I don't think that the extra advantages allow a person to do much that can't already be done.
Who wants to waste time and money with the special primers needed. Not too many hunters!
I can see applications for target shooters, but for hunters in most bush conditions, I think that they're a waste.
