If in an ideal magical world we were given the option, what would you choose: a short, reliable, 5.56mm rifle that was great for having in a vehicle and allowed you to carry 10ish mags or a long, heavy 7.62 mm elephant gun that was sometimes a bit of a pain in a vehicle, but had the bigger round. I appreciate that this has probably been asked a thousand times but i wanted to see what the consensus of opinion was. I am about to enter the magical world were you have a choice and was wondering if the added ballache of carrying a 7.62 was worth the benefits it brings to the party. The theater by the way is Iraq. Thoughts please. Thanks. Codhead.
