Either a SAW or 100+ sniper's with bad aim

Notice: the round that pops the poor bastard in the head is a round that deflects from the ground, I now understand why in BLACKHAWK DOWN the Delta boys tell the Rangers to stay away from the building walls.

ITS MUSIC TO MY EARS ON A TANGO! GET SOME!

i'm not sure he gets one in the head.

i tried to watch it slow-mo and it looks like he takes a tracer to the chest. as it exits his back, you can see the upwards deflection of the projectile.

can someone take a still that shows the ricochet to the head?

I like how the round snaps his humerus in his left arm.

It sounded like 2 three round bursts form an M-16.

Yeah his head took a hit.

I like the video of the Iraqi firing the RPK down an alley too close to the wall...looses control of it...kills himself with riccochets

Really, someone HAS to post that.

I also remember a video of some insurgents in an alley, firing on our guys, then a grenade from an M203(i think) happens to go their way.

I think so too, at no time does his muzzle fall that low. Looks like a 40mm maybe. Plus it's a huge explosion just listen to it.

I'm not sure it killed him, I've seen a longer video and he is wounded but not dead yet.

I'll go try to find it.

The SAW is 5.56

Thanks, I honestly didn't know, as I had just talked to a guy who claimed to be an army SAW gunner who carried .308.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 7:58:23 PM EST
But I thought the 5.56 was useless as a military round!

A SAW has round has a bit more juice than an m4 round. Your not supposed to swap out unless you have to. The m4 round also makes the SAW cycle funny and jam when firing a mag. I am sure that some one that knows more about the difference between rounds could tell you exactly why. The reason people say it isn’t a good round isn’t cause you cant stitch them up its cause if you only hit em once some times you don’t cause enough trauma to knock them down. Most of the time if you hit them with the SAW they drop cause you hit them three to five times!hainsawkill.gif

I thought they were both 5.56 NATO...

They are the same caliber (5.56mm) round but if I under stand things correctly that just refers to its diameter. It could have more mass for instance. I ThinK the SAW round has more powder behind it but I don’t know.

(Just incase you want to rake me over the grill for saying caliber and then referring to mm I already know its wrong. I don’t know how you would properly make that reference though)

Are you sure you are not thinking of the (now abandoned) 6mm SAW round? I'm pretty sure that they use the same 5.56X45 NATO round, they just link the rounds for the SAW and maybe mix in tracers.

Actually, I think that M855 was originally developed for the SAW and then adoped for the M16A2; this is why they both have 1/7" bbl twists.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 10:16:03 PM EST
I would personally like to see the video of the police sniper that shoots the gun out of the guys hand. Its been on those sniper documentaries, anyone know of it on the net?

The SAW (M249) is 5.56x45 just like the M-16/M4... It is actually designed to take a magazine if you run out of belts....

My understanding is M855 was developed FOR the SAW. They wanted a support gun that could

compete with the M60 at long range. The military had this fucking great idea to issue M855

to all soldiers and do away with 55gr M193. Soooo, they fire the same round (minus the tracers).

Correct me if I'm wrong.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 11:10:40 PM EST
Flushdraw, you are right.

The difference is the SAW has an 18 inch barrel, and the barrel on the M4 is 14.5 inches.

Cool. I stand corrected.
