that seems to me to be the problem, and mr. kalishnikov did a better job of solving it than mr. stoner. most soldiers don’t need a 1,000 meter sniper rifle. they need a compact automatic rifle that works in close combat.

Sorry, but it looks like Dieudonne Saive (John Browning’s protege) got the last laugh on Mr. Kalashnikov and Mr. Stoner.

Every cartridge is a tradeoff.

7.62x39 was first a carbine round in the SKS.

The Germans most often used Machine Pistols
in 9mm parabellum for CQB.
starting with MP18.

,223 is a varmint round.
7.52x39 is a deer round.

I don't use a varmint rifle to shoot deer.

Somehow DOD thinks you can.
