a short 223 still has that much power left at 1/2 a mile, even with just White box ball. :) Same [pussies who are scared of firing a .22 pistol at aerial targets claim a 223 bounces off of them at 1/4 mile, and 22lr pistol is "dangerous" at a mile. :) bs, the 22 pistol bullet won't penetrate a heavy coat at 1/4 mile, and you'd have to be firing at the ideal angle of elevation to get it to even GO that far.

60 fpe of energy. Now let's look at that. A one pound rock traveling at 65 fps is something like 66 fpe. So that's 'lethal' is we shove it in gunkid's ass at the speed, right?

stupekid is a nitwit. He has no proof the Army said such a thing. He just made things up as he usually does.

Andy, sorry to shoot you down on this one but...

Yes, I'm sure .223 is still quite dangerous at longer ranges. But is it reliably lethal, or accurate? No. The wind plays havoc with lighter bullets andy, figure it out. Your talking about absolutely ideal circumstances: Dry, still, quiet. Try shooting the same .223 at a 200 yard target with a stiff breeze and see why a heavier round is required for an all around survival gun.

Oh, and if 60fpe is lethal, then by your own admission, My slingshot loaded with fishing weights is more lethal than many firearms.
