The 5.56 is a hotter load. The bullet was designed to tumble upon entry. As a military round it was designed to badly wound rather than kill, as when a soldier is wounded it removes two or three people from the field of battle (the wounded soldier and one or two to carry him off) rather than an outright kill that removes only one. The trouble was that the NVA and Viet Cong sucked up the losses and attacked without regard to casualites - cleaning up after the battle. Dead and wounded NVA & Viet Cong were seldom found on the field after a battle. Calculations had to be made to estimate their casualties based upon those bodies found.

It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that John Lott has changed the national debate on gun control. His rigorous research and prolific pen have exposed the slip-shod analysis of anti-Constitution advocates.

I’ve cited his work on several occasions.
