    First what is the most common type and powder loading for a 5.56X45 NATO, a civilian .223 and a Russian 7.62X39? Do they have similar powder loadings but different chamber pressures?

    And secondly which is louder, both from the shooter, down range like 200 meters or so and from a distance like 800m away? What are the dB levels for the 5.56 NATO, .223 and 7.62X39 assuming you have an AR-15 with a 16in barrel, an AK47 with a 16 inch and a military M4 carbine with a 14.5in barrel and an M16 with a 20in barrel.

    Spent plenty of time Down range on a shooting range at Fort Lenardwood.

    The 223/556 may be a bit louder because it is a higher pressure round.

    Down range they are both only going to produce a crack because they are both super sonic.

    I could never tell much of a difference when pulling targets.
