New Army M110 Can Reach Out and Get the Bad Guys
« on: November 08, 2019, 12:30:08 PM »

They can run but they'll only die tired.  :violent-smiley-007:

snip:


The U.S. Army is rolling out a new rifle that is sure to leave a lasting impression on bad guys, but only in the unlikely event they’re able to get an up-close look at it.

The M110 Squad Designated Marksman Rifle will be rolled out soon after being deemed fit for soldiers, according to the Army.

Chambered in 7.62, the M110 will provide operators with the ability to project power in a way the standard 5.56 round simply can’t.

With a range of 800 meters, the rifle is more than capable of reaching out and touching anyone intent on doing harm to America.

But Gym, it’s one of those mean looking rifles that might assault someone.

Since it's not an AR the lefty loons will have to think up a new term for the M.

I guess it will be a ban on all MILITARY style rifles.

That's just about everything.

I once tried to explain the difference between bolt action and semi-automatic to a lady I knew in Cincy who was very anti-gun.  She wanted to write a letter to our Congressman, and did, she showed me the letter after she sent it.  Suffice it to say my efforts were in vain.

I asked her later what she wanted done with handguns since they are involved in the vast majority of gun crimes and she told me "Oh, I want those banned completely."

OK, then.

That was your mistake trying to explain the difference to a woman.       :hee20hee20hee:

She asked me to help her, and I had the time.  She just got confused about several things.  And there are plenty of men who do not understand clear explanations as well.  In my experience in life, men are not smarter than women and no more capable in general of understanding concepts.

Anyway, she probably felt better having written her letter.

The 7.62 in m40a4 config will reach out to 1100m.  I've engaged targets at 1k meters myself.  It is rated at 1MOA which is 10 inches at 1k meters, but its been my experience its better than that.  Likely around 1/2 to 3/4 MOA. 

The m107 is good to 1875 yards. I've personally seen targets engaged successfully at just over 2k yards.  Ive never fired it over 1k meters, as thats the longest range ive been on with access to a 107.  That 50cal has a lot of ass behind it. A LOT.

Its a curious thing... All the talk about range... The average designated marksman shot is 74 yards. The average marine sniper shot is 145 yards.  The m16a2 will reach out to 500m for a point target and 850 for an area target.  I personally watched a green beret taking out hodgies at 615 yards freehand with an hbar ar15 in 5.56... I know the range because I was the spotter and mil'd it out while setting up my shooter... We had just got on target and was requesting permission to engage when that dude walked up and started dropping them.... They had little cover and thought they were out of range. Dumbasses.

The problem with 5.56 is you may hit a target but you likely wont see them drop unless you hit them in the circuitry.  Even then its not a promise. A heavier round, even the 7.62, and you can see the impact... A 7.62 will break a mans stride at full sprint. You'll wonder forever if it was a good shot with 5.56.  A 50 cal? Yeah, you take them off their feet and have certainly that ghost wont come back to haunt you.

Truth lies in the crosshairs.  Merry early Marine Corps Birthday to my brothers who read this!!!
