>>50822020
it doesn't suck if you use the correct load and the right barrel for what you are doing, and stay within 500m, and compensate for its arced trajectory, and aren't dealing with anyone hiding behind cans of beans

It's a dumb meme round that literally can't go through a can of beans, intermediate cartridges are on par with handgun calibers.
>>
>>50822053
its like a handgun caliber but if you have a decently long barrel it causes your flesh to explode instead of poking a hole through.
>>
>>50822053
Bruh. It's one of the most widely stocked rounds, how is it a meme cartridge?

>>50822020
55 grain FMJ, 55 yard zero and you are good to 300 yards. It'll ventilate niggers wearing cheap steel armor and wish.com specials better than a 308 will and it doesn't use massive powder charges so your powder supply will last longer. It doesn't suck, it is good enough for almost anything you would need a rifle for. It's just a jack of all trades.

>>50822132
>Jack of all trades
It's not bro it's a light bullet going fast but only in barrel lengths that are gay to use.
Cringe round and it sucks.
>>
>>50822132
It's also a decent hunting cartridge for predators and is adequate for game up to roe deer, while being cheaper then other cartridges and offering a huge variety of loads by many manufacturers.

Yes 223 is faster and therefore better at penetrating steel shit armor than the 308 is with commonly available ammo. There is a reason that all the steel armor makers started marketing 3+ armor specifically because m193 was piercing their lvl3 shit. Yeah black tip stuff is better than 223, but you can't buy 308 blacktip at academy or cabela's or whatever.
>>
>>50822230
velocity is the most important factor in penetration, .308 is a slug compared to non-7.62x39 intermediate cartridges. also it's smaller surface area means less dispersion of kinetic energy.

in retard terms, small bullet going very fast punch hole better that large bullet moving not as fast.
>>
>>50822053
You do know .223 comes in more shapes than one right? You can get hotter .223 if you’d like. Are you new to shooting?

intermediate =/= smallbore

7.62x39 and 7.92x33 are first generation intermediate cartridges.

>>
>>50822352
They're shit to use and it's literally not a taste thing. Nobody who uses guns for their job uses a 20" barreled 223. They use bigger cartridges at that barrel length because 223 is a cope round that sucks ass outside if its extremely shitty and narrow application of being a drum roll for air support.
It's shit.

The difference between a 20" barrel and a 16" barrel is 120 fps. The velocity dropoff is greater with .308.

Every answer before this one can be ignored.

.223/5.56 sucks because it's boring. It's the min/maxed bullet that doesn't warrant a lot of conversation because proof of its efficiency is readily found and easily researched. It's most fun to shoot in a training kind of situation and it's anti-material ability is too tame to get more then a giggle from shooting bottles.

It's not worthy of criticism, it's boring to praise, and there isn't a lot of room for improvement.

Same for 7.62. Same for 9mm.

That's why everyone is itching for some cool new breakthrough to come along. But it won't, not for another decade.

Sucks for hunting. Not because it won't kill a deer, but because of how far it'll usually run before it drops, meaning you now have to drag it much further. Possibly through difficult terrain. For people though, yeah sure why not? You're not trying to take humans home to eat them. Right?

Except no one wants to pay over a dollar a round for something that doesn't do anything that is barely marginal over standard military rounds that are already cheaper, standardized, and more widely available.

Why would you shoot 223 from a 16" when you can 308 from an 18" lmao. Joke round.
16" for a rifle is too fucking long to not be shooting bigger cartridges.
>>
>>50822956
Maybe you should prove him wrong. Isn't it like 30,000 rounds fired for 1 kill overseas? Doesn't sound like there's a lot of killing happening with 5.56.
>>
>>50830407
From all accounts I've seen, that includes training rounds. And they can only account for confirmed kills. Compiled with the current doctrine of hosing targets with the 249 till they fuck off, it's pretty nebulous to try and account for the effectiveness of m855 off of just raw statistics
>>
>>50822052
>and compensate for its arced trajectory
Literally one of the reasons 5.56 was picked by the military was because it had the same flat trajectory as 30-06.
