We have guys around here the same way. Scopes on everything. I hunt with a Winchester 94 iron sights. Because with the ballistics of the 30/30 I'm not about to make an outragoues shot in brush.

Saw a guy last weekend same rifle with a 8X scope mounted on it. I mean come on. Optics have their purpose but you can't rely on them solely

I think we should up the cal. and go from a 5.56 to a 7.62.

Magazines would have to be bigger, the gun would get heavier, and the soldier couldn't carry as much ammo. Baaaad idea...

If any caliber change should take place it's to the 6.5mm Grendel round. It has the same punch, range, and stopping power of the 7.62mm but weigh less and with half the recoil.
