BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from 5.56mm round. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The 5.56x45mm round is a rifle cartridge derived from the .223 Remington, originally developed for the M16 service rifle of the United States Army.[1][2] It is a rimless, bottleneck cartridge that offers tremendous wounding potential under the right condition. Its performance and popularity among military forces endures despite the Great War: By 2287, it has served Americans for over two centuries, from the United States Army to the New California Republic Army.

CharacteristicsEdit

The 5.56 round is a fifty-five grain rimless hallow-point cartridge. Being produced by Circle G ammunition, the rounds came packaged in twenty count green and orange boxes. 5.56 rounds are mid-sized cartridges making them ideal for many assault rifles.

A FMJ bullet is very tough, and has pretty good penetration without sacrificing good expansion. In other words, it‘s an average round."
