Guys, I'm back - and with a vengence and I just love this thread!
5.56 milly - super! So light, so versatile, much more ammo to carry. So little stopping power at longer ranges! At shorter ranges - it goes straight
6.8 milly - super! Heavier, less ammo to carry but better stopping power at slightly longer ranges. Close in - what you hit (if you manage to hit
anything in the heat of the moment) goes down and should stay down!
7.62 milly - brilliant! What you hit out to 600 meters - stays hit and goes down! What you hit at 100 meters (or less) is just meat on a
butchers slab! Downside - got to carry more ammo. More ammo = weight but in a firefight, I know which ammo I want - and it aint 5.56 or 6.8 milly!
