This is gonna get shut down fast.
but if we say the .308 as bullet diameter instead of cartridge...
... the li'l cartridge that could.
Apropos for a June 5th post, but not today
. I like old cartridges, I own a .30-06 Springfield and a .270 Winchester
We'll have to wait until June 30th to celebrate the king of cartridges, but by all means let's celebrate his little brother.
You say old, I say timeless. Like other groundbreaking advancements from the 50's, they are still with us today because they were ahead of their time, innovative and effective. Here's the top 5 list of inventions from the era that changed the world:
1. Of course, at the top of the list, The .308 Winchester - 1952
2. The Barcode - 1952
3. The Passenger Jet - 1952
4. The Solar Cell - 1954
5. Fiber Optics - 1956
As I see it, a cartridge so extraordinary it get's two days a year to recognize its greatness. March 8th and July 6th
March 8 (308) is also my anniversary. Is there a connection?
Possessing a versatility that's only matched by its lethality. A veteran of wars, both cold and hot. When the 5.56 wasn't quite up to the task, what does The Green Machine grab? Well, you know.......
Well said Sir, well said!
