Galactic Six 6mm Caseless Electronically Fired Rounds

In mid to late YE 40 Section 6 and Galactic Horizon used their combined assets at Galactic Six developed a new round for their covert assault rifle in the form of a revamped version of the S6 6mm Bullets. The new round is caseless, uses a laser as a firing pin to strike the primer โ€“ which is little more than a lens - to propel the round, is just as lethal as the original, and has a much shorter lock time when firing.
