When you think about it, the cartridge case has been around since before the Civil War. Caseless ammo has the issues of cook-offs and overly fouled chambers affecting reliability. The plastic telescoping cartridge may be an acceptable next step.

Way cool! AAI has always played around at developing new lightweight platforms even when I worked there in hte 80s and 90s.  Looks like they might just have a winner here!
