You’d rather be hit with a 7.62? Me, I’d rather be shooting a 7.62 than a 5.56 at you, providing you were the enemy. Especially since the famous tumbling M-16 round isn’t made any more, or I don’t think it is.

It’s still made. It only tumbles when shot from longer barreled rifles. No tumbling when shot from a m4 carbine.
