If you compare the hole it is similar to a 22 through and through, and no one suggest that to be a good self defense round which you apparently are ok. Maybe you should go get one of the new GSG rifles and call the 5.56 quits?
See how bad your argument is? The reason I pointed this out is the bullet has issues in the wrong barrel, and not just ohh its kinda less, no its alot less.
If your going to come back at someone with a rant you should slow down when typing because you didn't make too much since with what you responded with.
Please pay attention to what I said and say here now.
First of all, your main argument was lack of velocity with the green tip ammo. Just as an example the average 36 grain .22 LR round has a velocity of 1280 FPS and the average 55 grain 5.56 FMJ round is around 2700 FPS. So you are going to tell me that the green tip ammo velocity is so bad that it compares to the .22 LR? I used the .22LR analogy because it's velocity is so low.
The green tip 5.56 was designed to penetrate light armored vehicles not Tanks or APC's, basically cars and trucks.
Now on to something of a personal nature:
You will never see me however long I continue to be a part of this form site to criticize someones shooting ability simply because I don't know any of the posters on here in the real world. You Sir do not know me or my skill set nor do you need to know, so please do not tell me that I can't make a shot with any platform at any range towards any target. If you think that when a target presents itself that I am going to fire 1 single round and wait to see if that target is able to shoot back you have another thing coming, I will keep putting rounds down range into that target until I feel that the threat has been eliminated. Also if you believe that a center mass shot is so difficult than maybe you should hire a professional or take an assault rifle training course. The center mass of a human target is the easiest place to hit because it is the largest area of the human body. People that think that only a head shot from a 5.56 round is effective are morons and I truly hope that you do not fall into that category.
Lastly, Please do not tell me what fire arm I should be shooting with, I happen to have a Ruger 10/22 Tactical and within 100 yards I can also drop a target, maybe have to use a few more rounds to make sure but I can still get the job done.
All of your type on here that get wrapped up in ballistics and are looking for that ultimate stopping power round are usually the guys that are not very good shots, not saying this is you, just my real life experience
