It's a classic. I could think of much worse choices in chronographs.

There's not going to be any widespread adaption of the 6.8 SPC or any 6.8 round as a replacement for the 5.56. The Mk262 round is addressing the shortcomings of the 5.56 in shorter barrels quite nicely. Most of the 6.8 SPC usage has been limited to the special forces teams which have more flexibility in terms of what they can or cannot use.
I would guess that the purpose of the 5.56 M-16 was both for the purpose of putting out a larger volume of lead as well as injuring vs. instantly killing the enemy. An injured man requires medical attention as well as the assistance of his fellow solider. In essence, you're trying to tie up as much as the enemy's resources as possible and to divert their attention away from the actual fighting.

Yet, despite being designed to kill, guns still kill less people annually than automobiles. God forbid murderers figure out that automobiles are even deadlier weaons. You gun control supporters can't seem to get around the fact that most gunowners behave responsibly. We don't associate all car owners with drunk drivers, yet some people seem to have no problem associating criminals who use guns with all gunowners.
I don't know what is your price range, but I did notice several 34-38R suits on ebay. Serveral are Isaia suits and a southwick on Carlo Franco's ebay store. Here are the link to a couple of them: Southwick from Sartorial Solution (aka Carlo Franco) Isaia suit at Shop The Finest Good luck and good shopping.
