TACTICAL PRECISION, For 2011, SIG SAUER® is offering several variants to its tactical platforms. Leading the way is our new SIG556 Russian, chambered for the widely used 7.62 x 39mm caliber. Using AK-type magazines, the shooter now has a more potent round for small to medium game. The SIG556R features a distinctive folding and telescopic stock, and an M1913 rail for accessory attachment. The 16” barrel features four-groove rifling and a twist rate of 1:9.5”. At its full extension, the SIG556R measures 36” but can fold to 26”, making it ideal for situations where maximum maneuverability is required. For Special Forces requiring an accurate, more potent rifle, chambered in 7.62x39mm, the SIG556R sets a new standard for dependable
operation and function.

You've got some great posts man.
What are your thoughts on the FN P90?
I'm digging it's compact size and also low collateral damage of the caliber.

I slipped up, he has a SIG 556 in 5.56. Totally missed the fact that the R was in 7.62. Disregard my previous failed post.

My guess is it has a favorite and once you find that... Maybe federal 75 grainers... it will be a life long favorite...
of course thanks to folks giving up on fine guns... is exactly how I end up with so many fine toys... at prices well below wholesale
