    His premise is that there is a problem, maybe there is one for him and others but what he calls a problem is not something I see as being problematic, at least not for me. That is probably because I am not much of an AR guy, I only own three of them and despite any differences - they are all rifles that accept and shoot 5.56x45mm ammo and or 223 ammo. Those differences are marked on their barrels, thus are not problems for me. There are some other differences of which I like to be aware, like: twist rate, barrel length, type of buffer, and such but as for what he is talking about, it is above my pay grade so to speak. I imagine though, others will be enthralled because they are much more into the nuances of the AR platform than am I. Still though, I will give it a read when I have the time, may learn something that will be of value. Thanks for posting the link.

    This guy gets it. All guns are about distance. After reading this article, it made me think about what roles my guns play.
    I have always been about the distance, not so much about the titles he focuses on.

    .308 at the top of the stack, then 5.56 until the bottom, which is 9mm on both sides. The 9mm’s can be replaced by .45 which is ballistically equivalent to subsonic .300.
    the author thinks .300 has a purpose, it’s where we differ.

    It's a 7.62 ballistically (is that a word?) and outside of 100 yards it's not even that good.
