I'm still not quite sold on the OMEN, not for the price point they're looking for.
It's not exactly outlandish, but for the price of the OMEN and it's ballistics, compared to the price of my 300 SAUM and it's ballistics...I don't see the draw.
have a FINE LIST of semi-autos as well, but again...a bit out of my budget.
The difference between both the RND and NEMO line, is that they are built on proprietary platforms...for obvious reasons.
You're right to assume that the market is going to continue to improve, but the caliber restrictions of the AR10 style and the AR15 are going to always come down to the size of the platform and the cartridge your trying to stick into it.
You're not likely to see anything bigger than the SAUM/WSM in the AR10...specifically because of the .532 bolt face. Anything bigger than that and you're not going to have the strength in the bolt lugs.
You're also not going to see any longer cases being used because of mag length restrictions.
The same for the AR15. The WSSM case is easily the limit here, because it required a completely proprietary bolt...not just an opened up bolt face.
The same with the case length.
Oly got around the case length restriction with the 22-250, but making proprietary parts and mags to make it work.
When you get to those levels of modification, you lose the ability to do it at a reasonable cost...which only accentuates the attraction of more standard calibers.
