No, clown, I am just stating what the world's militaries All AGREE on. The .30 cal rds are too HEAVY, and the rifle doesn't amount to a hill of beans in combat. It accounts for at MOST 10% of battlefield casulties. So the miitary wised up and doesn't waste much in the way of resources on it. You clowns just aint got a clue. You can bitch all you want, the military AINT going back to .30 cal, and 223 SOFTPOINTS work just fine. In fact, they stop men BETTER than 308 ball does. Softpoints fix the 223's problem, but softpoints (and nothing else, either) CAN'T fix the 30 cal's problem, which is WEIGHT and bulk of gun, and ammo. Weight and bulk mean MUCH more to the survivalist than to a soldier, cause WE aint got humvees or choppers to ride to battle in, nor to extract us when we bite off more than we can chew. We don't have air support, nor safe bases to run back to. You better back off, dummy, because it aint ME that's mistaken. It's YOU.
