I’m getting tired of the main stream news media and their puppet master politicians and anti-2nd Amendment activists claiming the AR-15 (M16/M4), and even the AK-47, are “high-powered, high-velocity” weapons. But I can’t just blame them, I have to blame the gun industry itself. The AR-15 is marketed as a high power weapon, there’s even an internet business called High Velocity Arms that specializes in the AR-15.
To make it worse the gun industry intentionally makes their many versions of the AR-15 look ‘mean’. Looks have nothing to do with the performance of the ammo used in the gun!
Does this gun look ‘mean? This hunting rifle uses a true high-power/high-velocity 7mm Remington Magnum round.
Does this gun scare you? It’s the Ruger Mini-14 and it uses the same ammo as the AR-15.
High-power and high-velocity are relative. Compared to a .22 caliber ‘Long Rifle’ the .223 caliber round used by the AR-15 is high-velocity, but compared to many more guns available the AR-15 is what gun owners call a “plinker”. In fact that’s the true reason why the AR-15 is a popular gun, it’s more powerful than a .22 LR, but is far cheaper to shoot than the true high-power/high-velocity weapons.
The AK-47 and AR-15 ammo are much smaller than ammo used in hunting rifles and even ‘cowboy’ lever action guns
The AR-15 uses a .223 caliber (5.56mm bullet diameter, 45mm long casing) round. The AR-15 can be fitted with ‘sub-caliber’ kits that allow it to fire the smaller .22 LR ammo, or the 9mm pistol ammo.
The AK-47 uses a larger .30 caliber (7.62mm) bullet, but the casing (39mm long) is shorter than the .223, which means it’s actually lower velocity than the AR-15’s ammo, yet main stream news and anti-gunners call it a high power/high-velocity weapon as well.
I have a Winchester lever action rifle, some people call it a cowboy gun because it’s the rifle made famous by the old TV ‘western’ show The Rifleman. It uses .30-30 caliber (7.62mm bullet, 51mm’R’ casing) round, a much larger round than the AR-15. Then there’s .308 Winchester (7.62mm bullet, 51mm casing). While it’s similar in size to the .30-30 it is more powerful than the .30-30, hence it’s why military and police use it for sniping and light machine guns (LMG). Then there’s a round made famous during World War 1 and 2; .30-06 Springfield (7.62mm bullet, 63mm long casing).
The U.S. military switched from .30-06 to .308 because the smaller casing .308 could perform just as good or better than the .30-06, depending on the weight of the bullet and type of gun powder used. This brings up another point; the power and velocity (ballistics) of a bullet can also be affected by its weight and type of charge used in the casing. But hands down the AR-15 round can’t come close to the power and velocity of the .308, .30-06 or 7mm magnum.
CLASS WARFARE: BEING A MASS SHOOTER IS REALLY EXPENSIVE, SO HOW’D THEY DO IT, ESPECIALLY THE UNDER-EMPLOYED/UNEMPLOYED PATSIES?
False Flag: TRUCK LOAD OF AR-15s STOLEN!
