The way I read into Silvertip co's post, is that was in the 60's. I think all he was trying to say was that we never should have gone away from the real, proven, calibers, and its come full circle. They realised thier mistake. I think he's upset about the fact that our military has had thier head in the wrong place when it comes to effective performance. A 223 sounds like a wonderfull choice for laying down supressive fire, and/or gaining fire superiority, but what good does it do if they dont do the job when the bullets reach the target.
As Ive stated before Im out of my league when it comes to our service men, and the gear issued to them, as I have never been in. But I can tell you that NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE I have talked to on L/R/H would even think about griping if our boys needed all the 308's and 45's left in America, and furthermore, I know alot of guys would send thier own guns to our boys if it was needed. Myself included.
Now I cant speak for Silvertip Co, but I think you read his post ALL WRONG!
We all want them to be able to come back safe. And be able to do what's required of them while they are there with the right tools to keep them safe, and be effective.
