    First off people need to do a little research. The .556 round was (mistakenly) developed to create wounds not kill. The thought process was creating live casualties with wounds would tie up combatants helping the WOUNDED as well as lighting the combat load of our Marines and Soldiers. It was proven that the 7.62 round of the M-14 killed to many enemy combatants letting others to fight. Well it turns out the the NVA and VC did not bother with the wounded they were left there to die. Now the .45APC was a round developed to KNOCK down and KILL drug crazed Philippine insurgents in 1911 (hence the 1911 designation). Police went to the 9mm in a effort to wound not KILL people in their move away from the .45ACP in the late 60’s early 70’s.
