I know that I am asking a question pertaining to a certain topic that we all understand, but why would anyone still shoot the 556 in all practical applications? I cannot stand the thought of defending myself in modern warfare with a 22 caliber bore and less that 80grains of projectile weight going down range, no matter what the velocity, impact energy, or hydrostatic shock, a small light bullet might inflict. Are we all agreed that this is a most inferior round? Yet people purchase them day in and day out because the are unwilling to change. Believing the 556 is an excellent caliber is just like believing the world is flat. Please let me know why you might want to keep shoot and own your 556 and for what purpose would your own it if given the opportunity to own a 68.
