Vintage and antique ammo and firearm relics collecting as a hobby as well as general gun talk and news.
.308 NATO is capable of much greater distance than 460 meters.
As is the 30-06 and they also left out the BAR, 450 to 600 RDS per minute
Agreed on the 308.
Who came up with the idea that that the Garand's range is 402 meters? What an odd number.
I guess all those bull's eyes shot on the 500 yard line were just pure luck. And that was just for the everyday Marine. Snipers firing the M24 and M40 on the 1000 yd range must have been really crazy. But as far as I can remember (not very far) when we received the M-16 I do not seem to recall anyone telling us of the great range - 8oo yds - it was suppose to have. But they did tell us not to worry about cleaning the Matty Matel toy.
