Letter-to-the-editor on target | “Grants amount to corporate welfare” Lancaster Online

Letter-to-the-editor off target | In a letter-to-the-editor in yesterday’s LNP – Always Lancaster, a writer stated: The AR-15 shoots a small .223-inch diameter full-jacketed bullet that doesn’t expand. Popular deer hunting rifles shoot a .308 soft-tip bullet that expands, making a large, more deadly wound. With practice and a sling bag of ammunition, a shooter can fire 10 to 12 shots a minute with an old single-shot shotgun. If the Florida shooter had used a deer rifle or a shotgun firing rifled slugs or buckshot, there may have been no survivors.”

Not certain anyone who’s ever carried and fired the any weapon firing the 5.56×45mm NATO round would agree. Here’s more from The Sportsmen’s Shop in New Holland: .223 vs. 5.56 mm Ammo – a Comparison. Here’s another comparison at the American Rifleman: “.223 Remington Vs. 5.56: What’s in a Name?”

But everyone’s got opinions as this Atlantic Magazine article shows.
