Years later I bought an Australian L1A1, I managed to "find" a nice set of Canadian Wood - and the Disk Sight etc, and made a replica C1A1.
It was always amazing that later in life not being a 17-20 something running around with it - that it was much more enjoyable to shoot.
It always bothered me that years ago with the C1A1 with iron sights - we used to shoot out to 500, and that stopped with the C7 (which was much more easily shot accurately).
That said, having shot people with 5.56mm and 7.62mm if I was limited to ball ammo, I will always opt for 5.56mm.
But it is really had to beat a 110gr TSX bullet for anti-personnel usage in 7.62
Very few Armies do these daysWe really don't take marksmanship seriously.
It is all about the construction of the bullet with regards to the velocity at impact.Interesting on your opinion on 7.62 v 5.56.
I'd love to hear why ? But I am also cognizant this many not be something you're comfortable with. So I only ask in the deepest respect.
.308 is my number 1 or 2 go to round for deer and bear, .303br being the other. I understand I am using SP and not ball.
I see some of those charts don’t take into account the more recent trends of “increased medial-corporal diametrical mass distributions” of many western forces.
Which is why marksmanship is losing significance. Your target now has a larger centre of mass.
Agreed - our enemies aren't getting bigger at all.FTFY.
