I don't know if I'd characterise the adoption of the M61 as "crappy" or an "inferior design". The decision was made after several years of design and testing.

The current 7.62mm NATO AP is the M993 (M995 for the 5.56mm) which uses a completely different penetrator. If you don't like the M61, you'll like them even less.
