I LOVE that video. Kevin is a complete beast.

“I was in uniform when you were in liquid form”

“The argument that 5.56 doesn’t kill people, I beg to differ. I’ve killed a lot of people with 5.56”

Yes it does Rob, the thing about the 5.56 is that it starts tumbling when it strikes target and does alot of damage.

Also military ammo has a steal core and green tip if you find any buy it up.

M885 green tip is the worst and least effective 5.56 round. It passes straight through and does little damage to flesh. All one has to do is get out and test it to confirm.

If you need to get through barriers … well that’s a different story.

Developed because of circumstances of conditions in which they were fighting, alot of walls and other cover for the enemy. Still in my opion a good option if your enemy is wearing any body armour or kevlar.

no argument there. My “grab it right now” rifle has green tip in it in case I have to blast through walls at more than likely badged thugs for the current reasons why.

Through the wall to push them back, out the door and in their head.

Other rounds for other applications.

No argument just personal opinion and preference.

Another gun I have is a lever action 45-70 loaded with a 400gr if it will take down a grizzly bear I am sure it will do the job.

Not to claim that I know more than I think I do, but I have been reloading my own ammo since the early 90s.

I also prefer my own reloads as opposed to factory ammunition, for me working up loads over the years alot more accurate. I have tested the 5.56 factory and my reloads against brick, dry wall wood etc. It works for me.

Soft targets? SP or any other hunting round would be great (62gr+).

in my experience one of the most devastating rounds in an AR are the Barnes TSX. Retains most of its weight, expands amazingly and it’s basically a freight train going through flesh. More or less the opposite of the M885 green tip, but it’s expensive.

But for all around good compromise between penetration and a reasonable amount of expansion, it’s difficult to bet the Sierra .77 gr. Matchking
