Depends on how fast your finger is...

If it's not a full-auto AR-15, it's a copy.

Is this a question or a statement or what?

If a tree falls in the forest and there's noone to hear it, did it really fall?

Which came first: chicken or egg?

Which empties faster: M16 with four betas, or a 400 round belt bump-fired shrike?

Well, a RATE of fire of 400 rounds per minute is only 6.7 rounds/second, which is very easy to achieve. Accuracy, however, will go to hell, but it's not that hard. I can shoot 6 rounds/second with my 1911 and keep the shots in the "A" zone of an IPSC target at 7 yds. The AR should not be that bad. This is assuming "normal" shooting, not bumpfiring.
Never have I seen a word as accurate as politics. Poly meaning
many, and tic being a blood-sucking thing.

Dump a 30rd mag and have someone time you. It takes me between 7-8 seconds to dump 30 rounds down range so in a minute I could dump 225-257 rounds in one minute provided my trigger finger doesn't get tired.

You need to be more specific. The AR can be made to fire at a rate that would translate to 400/minute. Actually being able to fire 400 rounds in a single minute would require Beta Mags to reduce the number of reloads needed and would require the shooter to have both speed and stamina in their trigger finger.

It was a phrase in the Savannah, GA paper.

You need to register for the complete article and I can't.

Can an AR-15 shoot 400 rounds per minute?


Cyclic or actual?
