I was refering to the weight argument. They need more rounds if they are using such a light round. Same goes for the 9mm.

The "lets wound them and stress their resources" argument is gone with our current enemy as well.

I am guessing it's a treaty or something, but why don't we use hollow or soft points? Light, fast, FMJ might be good for venison...

Well, the .223 and the 5.45 were designed to reduce the weight of the round and tumble to increase the size of the wound channel in order to increase fatality.

And they both work well, but have limitations.

It would be nice to have a magic gun that did it all.

The Com Block folks have had tremendous sucsess by developing one platform that is depedable and is chambered for all kinds of loads, thought the logistics of using a bunch of calibers is a problem. There are always trade off and limitations to weapons systems

Check out this 8mm AK..thats like a 30.06!

You are correct about that. We have known forever that they dont give a shit about thier wounded
