Energy conversion disparity[edit]

On the page about 5.56x45, the cartridge's muzzle velocity is said to be 1,766 joules and 1,303 ft. lbs. On the page about 5.8x42, the cartridge's muzzle velocity is said to be 1,800 joules and 1,300 ft. lbs.

I realize that there are differences in standards, but this is pretty blatant. If someone can find another source for the muzzle energy on 5.8x42, that would be wonderful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.121.181.251 (talk) 18:56, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Dead Link[edit]

The first link at the bottom of the page appears to be dead. Nfsjunkie91 04:21, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Casing Material[edit]

"In particular, the shell casing is made of iron, which is cheaper than brass."


Surely, this should read "steel"?! Heavenlyblue (talk) 08:56, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

I couldn't find any sources, but logically it must be so, so I've gone ahead and changed it. Heavenlyblue (talk) 03:48, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Terminal Ballistic[edit]

At the end of the article, it says : " However, testing of the previous DBP87/95 5.8mm rounds showed that they were less likely to cause serious wounds. The issue was addressed with the new DBP10 round.[7]"

The REF "7" refers to this webpage http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htweap/20120711.aspx

however that webpage says the opposite: "Testing showed that the new 5.8mm round was less likely to cause serious wounds. This issue has not been addressed with the new DBP10 round."

has NOT been addressed — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vmaldia (talkcontribs) 14:45, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Entire article needs re-write[edit]

Someone who actually speaks English needs to re-write this. It is unreadable in its current form. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.152.119.72 (talk) 16:50, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Phrasing is bogus[edit]

"...utilizes a longer streamlined bullet with a heavy steel core for increased range and penetration."

Steel is less dense than either lead or copper, the other materials the bullet would be made of, so a steel core would decrease range and possibly penetration and the core should be described as "light". Maybe the writer confused steel with tungsten? Or maybe replace 'heavy' with 'hardened' if it is using hardened steel? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.31.106.35 (talk) 19:50, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
