Sir A, which guns use the 40mm? As far as I know, AFP only has the Bofors which use it... Are we gearing up for a new weapon system? Possibly autocannon ammo?

Getting authoritative details.  :)

Simply getting rounds that are already compatible with existing 40mm systems would make sense. After all, why re-invent the wheel just to re-invent it?

40mm AGL. (Automatic Grenade Launcher), M203 grenade launcher. All these uses 40mm grenade rounds.

Oh, of course! Silly me! I was thinking of the ammunition in terms of bullets and I forgot about AGL ammo and M203 grenade launcher...
