.499 Assault rifle?

I was recently directed to here and here where a .499 cartridge is being used in an AR, and was wondering what the reliability of these rifles are like. Also, anyone who may have shot one, how much harder is it to control than 5.56 or 7.62 type standard AR fare?

That would be the gun that the military is developing to replace the M-16. Yeah, it takes some getting used to.
