In the battle field you are not going to hit something at 600-800 meters, its not going to happen. Most open battlefields you have all sorts of weapon
systems that can hit that far it is not necessary for the individual solider to try and hit something in the desert 800 meters away with the M-16. In
urban combat you are not even going to get a chance to hit something 800 meters away. It is good for soldiers to be able to hit targets that far but
it is not necessary to design a new bullet for the rifles that can be accurate at those ranges IMHO.
