Here’s a Kit Up! exclusive…We obtained the only publicly released video of an Army test shoot with the experimental M-249 SAW-like machine gun firing cased telescoped ammo.

A couple things of note here…First, notice the weapon’s increased recoil seems to have been mitigated by the long stroke soft recoil system. Also, at around 0:22 you can see from the side shot how the case is ejected in front of the bolt with the links being ejected as the round is loaded.
