The 5.56 is a round that's designed to wound, not kill, in the same way the 3030 is, or even the .303. It was first used by the Russians if I remember right since a dead soldier only takes one person off the battlefield. A wounded soldier takes off three. The wounded one plus two more to carry him back for aid.

The5.56 weighs about half what the 7.62 does, allowing the grunts to carry twice as many 5.56 rounds into the fiield. The M-14 was also heavier and a lot more expensive to produce, which is why the M-16 replaced it.
