Just one more item of proof to never doubt the 5.56mm round when its time to take that shot!

Well, if they don't like that round, we could always be less modern, and go back to an earlier time. Issue some Winchester 1886's or a currently manufactured equivalent: the .45-70 ought to work just a little.

The moral of the article -- don't throw rocks and you won't get shot.

Guys, read the article.

"Many of the wounded were hit at short range less than 100 meters compounding internal damage."

The above is in agreement with at least one after-action report from the Marines in Iraq. In no way am I a basher of the 5.56mm round but I do believe the continual deployment of shorter and shorter barreled weapons is taking the "V" component out of what is an SCVH (Small Caliber High Velocity) weapon. The original AR-15 design was for a 20" barrel. However, by 1963 and the AR-18/AR-180 ArmaLite had figured out that 3150fps could be had from an 18.25", 1:12 twist barrel using 55grn bullets. Without high velocity you're simply left with a .22 and that's not gonna knock down crap at any distance.

As you read through subject article you'll see that even this writer understands this is a "high velocity" weapon. And that alone is pretty amazing !!

Bullet issues aside, I'd like to tell those pinkos whining about the Israelis using M-16s that they'd do the exact same thing when it would come time to force people to pay their taxes or follow government orders. I doubt theses people bitch much about the far leass humane "wounds" suicide bombers inflict upon Jews.

I don't support either side on this matter, but I just want to point out that we're dealing with socialists on both sides of the issue. Both will kill you with AR-15s for your property.

Its because the Izzys use the M16 in its perfect form, The M16A1.
