When it was announced, I hoped it would catch on as it would have been a great case for short cartridges in .25 and .35 calibers. If Remington had chambered a short bolt action weighing about 6 pounds for the 30 RAR or another caliber based on the case, it would have had a slightly better chance.
I had no interest in an AR that was heavy and more expensive than most other AR's on the market. Apparently not many others were interested either. If I had had a chance to purchase a thousand once fired brass at a good price within a year of it's announcement, I would have gladly bought it and started looking for an action to accept it.

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional , illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of cr*p by the clean end!
Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" really means.....
