but just not sure about the knock down power of the little round.

Agreed, ford

The .223/5.56 already receives an awful lot of criticism, much of it deserved. Now to take a round designed specifically for personal defense and put it in a gun this size has no practical advantage over the bigger rounds. I'm not going to go so far as to say it's dumb, as people build and sell things because they can, and that's reaon enough. But this definitely isn't high on my list of guns to buy when I win the Powerball.

I see the Powerball is only $170,000,000 for tonights drawing. Sure would be nice to win. LOL The fun of dreaming!!!!!

ford, dreaming?

The powerball is my financial planning. I'm going to win the powerball when I'm 45 years old. That's what Dionne Warwick's psychic friends network told me. I only buy powerball tickets until then to win smaller prizes. It hasn't happened yet, but it will. I'm sure of it. Please. GOD, I NEED THIS!!!. Okay, I've slapped myself and I'm calm now. But as soon as I fall asleep, I'm going to get myself back for that slap. Just me wait and see.

The stats that I saw were equivalent to a 9mm. About 334 ft lbs and good for about 200 meters. This was done with an 11" barell, so I would assume a 16" bbl would be somewhat better. I will post the stats when I find them again.

should have a lot higher velocities and far better penetration than 9x19
