5.56 v 7.62

I have done a long, complicated and math heavy comparison between 5.56x45mm NATO and 7.62x51mm NATO in GURPS terms.

7.62 does more damage (24.5 v 15.5) per shot, but thanks to the lower Rcl number, 5.56 will hit more often; thus doing more damage overall.

When you couple that with being able to carry more than twice the ammo 5.56 wins, hands down.

I am proud to say that when you start servicing the beaten zone, 7.62 comes back into the fore thanks to rules which tend to level the weapon specific reason you'd pic a 5.56 gun.
