Id shoot anything aslong as I could attach an ACOG to it..

Weaponwise Ill put my vote on the HK416 if I had to carry it around.
G36C coming in on a close second.
Thats for all you 7.62 fags.

For stationairy work, Id go with the AG90 B..Just sayin.
No better way to deliver bad news then from 1 klick away..

The length of barrel does have an effect on terminal ballistics with the standard M855 (SS109 NATO). The shorter the length of the barrel the shorter distance that the round will have to break apart when it strikes a soft target. Anything after that magical number means that you're punching .22 caliber holes in folks. What makes a round kill or injure is the transference of energy during impact. When the round strikes and stops within the body all of that energy goes somewhere. It cause organs and blood vessels to rupture, causes a temporary wound cavity and a permanent wound cavity. This leads to blood loss and loss of oxygen, which in turns causes death and or incapacitates the enemy and he/she can no longer fight.

But with modern urban combat (except for some remote parts of Afghanistan), the M4 and the M855 is doing the job. If we could use something like Hornady Tap 75gr JHP; then the M4 would be kicking arse and taking names.

Love the M4. Haven't touched a M16 since sand hill. I'm obviously biased but it has always seemed perfect for what I needed it to do. Doing MOUT with something the length of a M16 is cumbersome and consuming.

I love the M4, but I chose the K2 over it because of reliability.
