Re: Small Arms Thread

ArmenT, Was watching a TV show on US military. The guy said the US Special Forces has a 5.5.6 that is good to 600m. And in some versions is good enough to be a sniper rifle. What is he talking about? I thought the M16 is close to300m effective. The original M855 cartridge for the M16 from the 1980s...

Re: Small Arms Thread

^^^^ Thanks much sir. Forgot to mention a couple more points in the post. The M855 was originally designed in the 1960s with the 20 inch M16 barrel in mind, so the fragmentation and yawing would happen at distances up to 100 meters or so. Bear in mind that the ability to frag. and yaw for this bulle...
