From here to 1000 yards, a cement block can't save you from an 7.62mm that will consistently hit inside a 8in ring. 5.56mm is for prarie dogs and coyotes. But I suppose when a majority of your military can't hit crap so to speak, I suppose the 5.56mm and spray and pray techniques is good enough.
The .223rem/5.56mm is just a .22LR going 3 times faster than a .22LR.
