I have never served in the military but own a few sporting firearms and go shooting quite a bit. I always thought that the 22-250 Rem would be a great all purpose round for rifles or machine guns. I have read up on the 6.8, it seems like a winner. The old 30 Rem necked down to .27 and small enough to chamber in the M-16. I would not want to be shot with one. I find it hard to believe that anyone could take even a single .223 in a vital area and walk away unless they were 400 plus yards away from the shooter when hit. I would like to see anyone that thinks the .223 is inadequate stand and take one in the chest then talk about how wimpy the round is. (just kidding, if you are an American or one of our allies)I went shooting with a .22 hornet this weekend and you should have seen the varmints explode! Nothing like celebrating the resurrection of the lord then a prairie dog shoot! The old hornet is not on par with the .223.
