  •  Its a bushmaster .223 (9+ / 0-)

    Its the same size, caliber, weight and recoil as the ar-15(M-16).  The rounds  of a .223 are so small, and shot at such a high velocity that when they impact flesh and bone they break into tiny bits.  Thats why Military has used it since Veitnam.  Its why you never heard of anyone being injured.  Its only purpose is to kill.

      due to ricochet problems... it's normally used for shooting small animals or sport, but also is standard military issue. From what I recall.
