The Israelis like the 9mm for CQB and the Russians like the 7.62 short.

The US M-4 has evolved a long way, maybe worthwhile, and maybe not.

I cannot say. I am too old to have ever touched an M-4.

As a kid I used to hunt ground hogs with my grandfather's .222, don't see that round very often anymore.

If you really need to reach out a long ways, the .40 and .50 calibres are the best. But that is strictly military.
Have you ever even fired a gun?

35 whelan, and another .35 caliber round (I think .35 remington) are starting to make a bit of a comeback...

I can tell that a lot of people here have never shot anything further than 100 yards away.
