At distances over 100 yards, the bullet lacks the velocity to yaw and cause a larger, more debilitating wound than other rounds.

At 100 yards the standard 5.56 round has more energy than a .45 ACP does at the muzzle.

Granted it's not delivering all of that energy into the target, but no Mil-Spec round ever will.

Yes, it has more energy, but the physics of the bullet at that velocity vs just a few hundred ft/sec more means the bullet zips right through and unless it strikes someone in the head or heart or nicks an artery, it doesn’t cause a wound that will put that person out of the fight immediately. Even at the lower ve3locities that a 7.62 X 39 Russian round goes, it dumps more energy into a human body and causes more damage.
