It's cheaper...cheaper to make, shoot, plus it's the round everyone else uses and we have to appease our NATO brothers.

Why you call bent out of shape about it?

Can you say NATO.

Also, the trend to smaller calibers allows our troops to carry more ammo as spray & pray is more "popular" than precision shooting...
