very well said, accurate information with a dab of insulting humor...something not commonly seen among journalists today.

In the end, whos shooting a bigger bullet with a more reliable gun. I dont know much about the M4 but i know the M16 and the AK-47 inside and out and in my books, AK wins.

Its not just the size of the round that counts, while i admit that the 7.62 is a lot more powerful than the 5.56, the M4 is also far more accurate than the AK-47. I'd prefer a smaller caliber weapon that will actually hit my target over a large caliber weapon that tends to be less accurate anyday of the week.

The 7.62 does have more energy at the muzzle and more penetrating power, BUT the terminal ballistics suck. 5.56 wounds will be worse than that of the 7.62x39 due to the slow moving, heavy bullet's tendency to do nothing but follow a more or less straight path, while the 5.56 will at least tumble or even fragment. Remember: Bullet energy doesn't kill you, it's the wound that is created!
