Head on prone men are 10" disks as targets

not 20", and that is if ground swells and vegetation,etc, do not cover or conceal part of the enemy as he lays there. If you will remember your geometry, the area of a circle increases by the square of any increase in the radius, so the 20" circle is not just twice as big an area as the 10" circle, it is 4x as big. So stop kidding yourself by firing at 18"x24" torso targets, nobody is going to be standing erect and holdinig still while you shoot at them, and nobody is standing around after you fire a " spotter" shot, either. Once you fire one shot, the enemy will all be going prone, moving to cover, etc.

I saw several hits on standing men in the battlefield past 300 yards, one was pushing 700 yards and a Marine infantrymen with his M16 put a bullet through his heart and stopped a mortor attack that wounded several of my friends. The insurgent was standing there in broad daylight calling in our position on his cell phone.

You're right that most, not all though, will hit dirt if you miss the first round. Thats why its important to practice so you dont miss that first round.

There are no absolutes in combat. Practice shooting with every weapon from every position. Training will save your life. YMMV but thats been my experience.

But tap... I thought .223 was guaranteed to be 6" at 600 yards? :-D
That should be no problem!

You crack me up dude, keep up the nonsense.

"So stop kidding yourself..."

But if I do that I'll have to stop reading your posts.

Tap,
Your posts are mildly amusing, just for the sheer BS factor in them.

When the enemy takes cover it just means you use your 203 and some HEDP, doesn't matter how tight you huge the ground when 40mm grenades start raining from the sky...........

What is the point of your OP? Since clearly you've never fired a shot at another person (Wii, Xbox doesn't count). You shoot center mass of the target presented so if that means I have to aim at your nose so be it.

Talking out your ***.

stop kidding yourself
Good thing my largest target is 8", and I usually use it as a backstop for my 400 yard shot at my 3" target... intending to shoot once for a "one shot, one kill" shot.

I shoot at a torso target when shooting my iron sighted 30-30 from 300 yards or more from a sitting or off-hand position... I still intend to hit the 6 or 8" target I place in the center of it.

So basically, every post you post is a strawman argument. You not an authority on any subjects you post about; you don't even know enough to be embarrassed.
