  2. Who'd of thunk it? ;)

    No one listened to the Mountain leaders report after the fight at Top Malo house during the Falklands. They stated back then that the 5.56 round they were using in their M16's failed to drop the enemy.

    Anyway, all praise the mighty elephant gun and all who were man enough to use it. :)

  3. 'The rounds currently issued as standard to SAS troops for their rifles are 5.56 mm calibre. In future, the troopers will be given 7.62 mm rounds – which are almost twice as heavy and designed to kill with a single shot.'

    How will the bigger rounds fit in their weapon systems I wonder?
