I wanna see the effects of the 5.56's impact on the human body. videos, gif, pics whatever. Is it a man stopper or just a meme?
>>
Removed many coyotes with this round, many deer and ground hog, I've seen it chew through car doors and mild steel. Look man...it gets the job done.
>>
Just a meme. It was designed to wound, not kill.

here

>>28622080
I'd guess you've never shot anything in that caliber
>>
>>28622085
Any caliber the military adopts will be used for a lot more than 50 years. Too much money invested in 5.56 to change even if they wanted to.

dings up some 1" thick aluminum real good.
>>
No videos of hajji's getting rekt by 5.56?
>>
>>28622307
green tip will pass through, but only the tiny penetrator. 55gr fmj was stopped at 100 yards. The ball peen hammer marks are from my 10.5" 9mm AR @ 50 and 100... and there are a few actual ball peen hammer marks from knocking this drop out of the plate.
>>
>>28622061
depends on a lot of factors.
the ammunition used in vietnam was known for ripping off limbs

You need help

could find anything with AR's or other 5.56 weapons, maybe im a faggot idk.
>>

couldnt find anything with AR's or other 5.56 rifles, idk maybe im just a faggot.
>>
>>28622372
Hajji's are not people so there is nothing fucked up about seeing them get whats coming.
>>
>>28622307
So why wouldn't 1" of woven aluminum armor be viable? Looks like out at 100 yards you'd be surviving a hit.
>>
>>28623406
Weight and force distribution.
>>
>>28622061

I've never had a problem making stuff dead with it, nor have any other people I know.
>>
>>28623406
Because NATO issues M855 green tip penetrators as the standard round. When the most common 5.56 round in circulation will chew through aluminum, it doesn't make any sense to use aluminum armor.
>>
>>28622416
Saw the video a while back of the insurgent or whatever in an iraq street aiming an rpg who then starts getting shot with what apparently was m249. One went through his torso and come out diagonally and hit the road, another hit his arm which buckled then the last went through his head
>>
its a meme round if you use meme tier bullets but then again so is pretty much any caliber
>>
>>28622080
>It was designed to wound, not kill.

I really, REALLY wish this stupid myth would die.
>>
Sorta related to OP, does anyone have a picture/gif/webm/video link of someone getting hit by a minigun?
>>
>>28623755
I hate how people confuse 'wound' with 'maim horribly'

Well hit it with something that has some stoppin POWAH then.
>>

That's the real meme


5.56 is front-heavy, and prone to tumbling upon entering flesh, creating a larger wound cavity ---->more non-survivable wounds than larger ball ammo
>>
>>28625235
Slow 7.62 doesn't have stopping power either, though.

>>28628215
But thats true for any bullet above .380.
>>
>>28629391

Guess that means 9mm is obsolete... in inches it's .350ish.
>>
>>28623406
855 made i over half way through this inch thick hunk of mild steel.
No fucking way aluminum will protect you

M855A1 (brown tip) is some scary shit. When it hits it first drops a shitload of nasty fragments all over your insides and then the steel bit just keeps going and going.

So is 7.62x39 the .45 ACP of rifle rounds?
>>
>>28632458
Dat explosion! dat gel farting smokes three times!
>>
>>28632458
>tfw bullet causes insides to literally explode

ouch
>>
>>28622080
>just a meme
>counters with meme
>>
>>28632899
>>28632946
that's caused by the gel, which is petroleum based. It's kinda the same principle as igniting diesel via compression.
>>
>>28632458

What causes the explosion? Compression combined with the gasses from the gel?
>>
>>28622101
6.8 confirmed.
>>
>>28622061
see m193 and its wound profile
