Picarto: why is everyone so guntistic Cal: because pic, funny Cal: 7.62x39 ------- - heavier bullet (harsher bullet drop, but better impact force (especially at low velocity)) - designed because the russians were tired of using the mosin nagant and the germans had 8mm short and that killed a bunch of them so they shrunk 7.62x54r - less tendency to tumble through brush and thin concealment (not really a barrier) - often used in weapons that keyhole the round at more than 100m anyway so the above doesn't matter for most people - just as much variety available on the US civilian market as 5.56 (tracer, incendiary, APIT, regular AP, hollow point, hollow point poly tip) - available in packages cheaper than most 5.56 but the cheaper ones are usually corrosive primed and steel cased which can cycle poorly in some guns - most of the cheaper stuff is banned because it has to be imported from russia and the president is allowed to just say "no" - heavier per-round to carry - recoils about the same as 5.56 but the platforms people use it in are old as fuck and don't use all the recoil-mitigating tricks the AR does - different recoil impulse and generally lower cyclic rate than 5.56 guns so you burn through less ammo in full auto - still available in modern platforms because a bunch of post-combloc countries refuse to move on and also CMMG exists - 7.62 aks have non-concentric threads so even if you shoot subsonics it's near impossible to make or get a can for it that will work because you need a can for your specific gun 5.56x45 ------- - lighter bullet (less bullet drop at distance, no stopping power) - designed to penetrate armor - devastating effect on non-armored targets - for most loads, creates much larger temporary wound cavities but smaller permanent wound cavities - small and light to carry - unreasonably expensive even though it is produced much more in the US market, but what isn't in 2023 - functionally no recoil if you don't hold the gun 4 inches away from your shoulder - more variety in accessories for most guns that fire it - most guns that fire it are more modular in general - completely useless in subsonic, and immensely high pressure, so 5.56 suppressors are often girthy, heavy and long - used by most NATO countries in some capacity so everyone has some - standard mags designed around it so plenty of availability for those - tons of interesting designs for it and almost every new-production rifle has a version made for it
