    ....I'm glad to say.

    Kudos for touching on the subject of cartridge power.

    It can be broken out further like this:

    A submachine gun (SMG) shoots a pistol caliber cartridge

    An assault rifle shoots an intermediate cartridge that is less powerful than a full sized rifle but bigger than the SMG pistol ammo.

    This is a .308 main battle rifle (MBR).  MBR is a generic term that is also applied to obsolete bolt actions.
