    I know exactly nothing about combat .

    I do know that a 130 gr cast game alloy bullet out of my AR will punch an almost 30 cal hole in a pice of 1/4" CRS at 110 yd after passing through a piece of 1/2" plywood . MV 2050 fps . I ain't the smartest person but it seems to me that at 2200 fps a steel or tungsten core is going to go through 1/4" AL armor and forget Kevlar . At 1000# you've got broken bones even if you don't have a leaking hole . A BT 55 will just barely make that in a 556 a pointed 110 ,120 or 130 will deliver that from the 6.8 at nearly 200 maybe more .

    I thought that was why the cartridge was developed .......

    130 grain cast at 2050? I much prefer my .4BC 130 fusion at 2700fps....the 6.8spc can be very potent if optimized

    First it was the Hague Convention. Geneva Convention dealt with POWs. (Said many time on "Hogan Heros"). Otherwise, true, we have a totally different enemy today. Those were the times of chivalry on the battlefield.

    The U.S. is not a signatory of the Hague Convention Declaration concerning the prohibition of the use of bullets which can easily expand or change their form inside the human body such as bullets with a hard covering which does not completely cover the core, or containing indentations, but does abide by the agreement.

    The U.S. is a signatory of some of the other declarations of the Hague Conventions.

    Correct, and we should abide by it when our foes are and use what we works best against terrorist and rogue regimes that don't.

    Thanks for your post, Steve. I was going to mention that about the Hague convention but you beat me to it. My opinion is that if your going to fight a war, fight to win or go home. Use the most effective choices you have. The only reason I can see for using FMJ is if you want to wound so someone else has to take care of the opponent.
