Now a reminder about the premise of the post: best rifle (naturally turns to caliber). And, on que, we see ".22 LR people" defending the weakest round when nothing but a few cents and lack of logic keeps them parroting and stops them from upgrading. They get defensive like the .22 LR was named by them...
I try to keep things simple. .22 Mag: twice as nice for three-halfs the price!
Maybe a "gook" will help Willshoum figure that out...
Only time will tell, when your trying to lug around all that gold and lead..... And don't forget what they said about fixt positions be over run......The military during the nam war actually left ammo behind that was hot and would explode in the ak 47... something in the neighborhood of one in 500 rounds.......I lost relatives in ww1, ww11 the korean war, viet nam, iraq, and afsewerstan, and i'm sure that I'll lose more in the years to come.....By the by why would a soldier in nam use a 12 ga. shot gun against an ak 47......Sure as hell it it for 100 yard shots..........
