    In an older thread I'd receive some solid info re the characteristics of a typical 55g round. But I haven't pinned down the ballistic and frangibility characteristics of Win Q3131A 55g and S & B 45g.

    If these two rounds have been charted and/or gelled, would you, please, provide me the info or link?

    Also, aside from the military rounds, what are other rounds/sizes that will properly fire in a 5.56 chambered AR-15?

    Appreciate all input.
    Thanks,

    -Andy

    Wonder how I missed that one...

    Now you've done it... I followed just one link to another, to another, and more. I'll never get all that reading done. And... the wife just asked when I was gonna get up and do something useful. She speaks in four-letter words - WORK, being the main one.

    Hey gun-fucious, thanks.
