You say battle rife. This discount the M16 and AK-47.

Both the M-16 and the AK-47 are main battle rifles. They were the main issued weapon that every military member of the respective countries military services. Both the M-16 adn the AK-47 shoot full powered rifle cartridges.

Don't get me wrong I live the Garand, but you contradict yourself in the first 30 seconds of the video.

Think so, huh?

The 5.56 is not a "full powered rifle cartridge" ... you could probably make somewhat of a case for the AK round.

Compare the ballistic performance of a .223 to a .30-06, or to a .308.

The AK and AR are "assault rifles" not "main battle rifles."

There is a difference.
