WOW! it only took 44 years to admit that the Poodle Shooter is nothing more than a top of the line varmit plinker!
How many American lives have been lost since 1966 because of the foolish decision to abandon the .308 M-14 and go with the .223?
If you want to get your blood boiling read the history of the big money, insider influence, and cover ups of operational defects that lead to the adoption of the AR-15/M-16/M-4 Poodle Shooters.
As in everything else related to the Federal Government, if you want the truth just follow the money.
You’ve obviously have never tried your magic M14 inside a building or a vehicle, or tried to get it to hold zero after jumping it.
If the M-16 family was so bad with it’s 5.56 round, how come the Kalashnikov eventually went down to a similarly small round? I think Eugene Stoner knew a thing or 3 about ballistics and the terminal effects of the 5.56. The early M-16’s were plagued by changes wrought by Army Ordnance Bureau.
