Looking at the spent brass being picked up at the end of the video it looks like neck gets squished which is no good for reloading?

The US Army should have adopted the MG-3 instead of the M-60 MG. The M-60 is just a poor copy of the MG-3/MG-42.. I was 11C10 and later 19D20 and the first time I fired the MG-3 after years of using the 60 gun I knew the MG-3 was a far superior weapon I really liked it specially the scope that was part of it's TO&E.

You know something its quality when was made 70 years ago and its still in use today. Love this gun and german quality machinery.

What a gun!
Barely changed in 77 years. Not even the grip or stock. Only the cartridge.
Good to see Americans and Germans being close allies, while just 74 years ago we were blasting each other to bits.

Amazing soldiers on both sides.
I love the Jammed round being reused. .03 sec

Backpack fed M60E4 Mk 43 being shot at the Lawrenceville Machinegun Shoot in September 2011.

I used to enjoy bantering in the comments on this video but I got tired of YouTube comedians thinking they were funny or anti-gun ignoramuses thinking it was intelligent political commentary to mention the Las Vegas shootings. Those of us who enjoy studying the history and technology involved in of firearms don't find that crap funny and I'm not sure why anyone would think it's even remotely appropriate or warranted...but given the anonymity of the Internet many people seem to feel comfortable making jackasses of themselves.
