I thought that the move toward 3-round bursts was largely due to barrels over-heating.

Search 'mad minute drill'

UK servicemen were getting insane rate of fire out of bolt action rifles with incredible accuracy due to one small thing.... Practice, practice, practice and...... More practice

This Guy Could Break the “Mad Minute” Record
Børklop’s rate of fire, 16 rounds in 25 seconds, is the equivalent of 38.4 rounds in 60 seconds. That’s a notable number because the record for the “Mad Minute”, a British Army marksmanship drill, is 38 rounds in one minute. That record was set in 1914 by Sergeant Instructor Alfred Snoxall, and still stands. So as you watch Børklop, keep in mind that Snoxall shot that fast for a full minute with a Lee-Enfield nearly 100 years ago!

Børklop has an average cycling time of 1.56 seconds per shot, starting with a round in the chamber. To beat the record of 38 rounds, he would need to make seven mag changes in sixty seconds. All those mag swaps could reduce his average time per shot, making it difficult to achieve 38 hits in a minute. But, if Børklop could use 10-round mags with his Sauer STR, this guy has the skills to break the record.

To emphasize the capabilities of the WWI-era British shooter who set the record, Snoxall shot as fast as Børklop does, but Snoxall reloaded with stripper clips. Snoxall’s SMLE (Lee-Enfield) rifle also had relatively crude open sights and the stock was far less ergonomic than Børklop’s Sauer STR stock.

Everything old is new again. Hundred years ago many soldiers were able to shoot Mosins at about 45 rounds a minute. Who cares? This is still about 1/12-1/15 rate of full auto fire.

Yes accellerated barrel wear was a major factor, but ammo conservation was the primary reason.

The thought after Vietnam was 3 shots effectively stay on target (climbing), similar to a Mozambique drill. Any additional ammo is wasted as hi flyers.

Also they found some soldiers under the stress of war would empty an entire magazine at a shadow without thinking. Tri burst on the other hand requires a second of reprocessing and would take more active thought to empty the magazine.

Personally I never saw a need for triburst in rifle calibers (F/A yes, but not burst)...but in high rpm pistol calibers like the mp5/mp5k, the 2 and 3 round burst is a whole different animal.

Be a low down, sneaky, cheating mothereffer. Hit them from a distance. Then identify the next highest threat, shoot them in descending order.

Who to shoot first:
1. Snipers or sharp shooters
2. Machine gunners
3. Radiomen
4. Sgt type people
5. Leaders
6. Medics
7. Cannon fodder

Your preferences may vary. Especially in absence of any of those categories. What will take precedence is a closer threat, which is just shoot the bastard before he shoots you. Wait till they reload, then shoot them as much as possible/needed.

well so far almost every answer given on this topic has been wrong, very wrong. the Hiker at least has a clue. its kind of like reading an episode of the walking dead, you know the show where the main character is so punch drunk he keeps getting his people killed making bad decisions?
How to fight people armed with automatics when you have only bolt and semi firearms?

you need only to watch and LEARN from the world news. IEDs, truck bombs, trip wires , booby traps, incendiary devices, using undetonated things that are laying around, mustard gas, and last but not least, follow them home and poison their water. no muss no fuss. Come back a few days later and pick up all the machine guns and ammo you need. this is how the isils, Muja hadeens, the people of the world that still live in the dark ages are doing it, RIGhT NoW, TODAY, and with great success. from the middle east, to Africa, to Spain, to Paris, to the Boston marathon , to the Japanese subways, to the twin towers to Oklahoma city via some ******* named McVeigh.

it only saddens me to hear about the full auto guns in Nam, the full auto guns in Iraq, the full auto guns in afgani, all places that the us has abounded, or gave up on after losing precious American lives to take it. it just makes me sick to my ****in stomach.
my 2 cents.

GG42 - 42 rounds a minute of ACCURATE fire vs 150 rounds of 'Spray and Pray'........

I think the round on target rate makes a 'human machine gun' with a bolt action more preferable to a waving a chunk of metal around and hoping to hit something

Multiple shooters, from multiple directions, and from maximum effective range, then retreat to strike again.
