Bullsh!t223 fan said:223 is ENOUGH, and you AINT silencing 308 auto rifle, with full power loads, and have anything but a bipod rifle,.
Neither will you. You won't be carrying your rifle in your pants, give it up.won't have concealment,.
See now, you were just braying about NOT needing the issue 5.56mm FMJ round. . .GI rifle rd,.
Unless you're a weakling, a FAL isn't that hard to shoot one-handedone handed use,.
Only an idiot would turn his combat rifle into an unreliable rimfire..22 unit, etc, either.
Bullsh!t, only an idiot will run towards fire in a SHTF situation, in a military situation, if you're in combat, they know where you are anyway.So your STUPID overconcern with "power" costs you your life, calling in enemies that you CAN'T handle..
Bullsh!t, .308 has a lot more range than .223 and hits harder at all ranges.308 has ZERO range advantage over 223, if you just have sense enough to stick to either thick cover or darkness, so you give up the MANY advantages of 223, for NOTHING.
the fact IS, dumbasses, guys MISS with thousands of rds for each SOLID torso or head hit that they get, and wt-bulk-expense advantages of the 223 mean MORE than the RARE instance whne a more powerful caliber than 223 means anything. We have to airlift BILLIONS of rds into a combat zone, mostly for NO tactical advantage at ALL (strictly morale) Infantry are nothing more than cannon fodder. The insurance payment for a dead soldier is STILL but $10,000, last I knew. SAME as it was over 30 years ago, while everything ELSE has quadrupled in price. that ought to TELL you something about what everyone REALLY thinks about the "worth' of a soldier's life. It means nothing, and his killing or wounding or capturined scores of enemy infantry mean nothing, either, cause infantry mean nothing, period.
Actually, they've learned and are using RPGs from even further away...How many days out of the last 60 have you been shot at johnny? Any at all?
How many days out of the last 60 have you been in a situation where you where fired on and returned fire? Any at all?
How many man hours have the people you support spent during the last 60 days being shot at and shooting back at real live armed people? Any at all?
How many armed people have you put down in the last 60 days with .223/5.56? Any at all?
Haji is 150m away and aims an RPG at your truck you can't afford to give him a tiny 22 caliber through and through wound and wait for him to bleed out. You want him down and out from the first hit.
Guess what? 7.62 does that.
YOUR short barreled 223 doesn't!
