    As we all know, with according to researches, 5.56 bullets fragment when they penetrate flesh if they hit with enough velocity. This means at some ranges 5.56 ammo will do significantly more damage than at longer ranges.
    According to www.ammo-oracle.com, it works like this:
    Distance to 2700 fps (823 m/s)
    20" Barrel
    16" Barrel
    14.5" Barrel
    11.5" Barrel

    M193
    190-200m
    140-150m
    95-100m
    40-45m

    M855
    140-150m
    90-95m
    45-50m
    12-15m

    As you can see, barrel length and ammo selection make a major impact on fragmentation range.

    Also they MAY fragment at speeds between 2500 and 2700 fps (762-823 m/s)

    This is important as these ARE ranges we use in INF.
    I think if 1 round is made standard it should me the m855/ss109, but it would be better if the game would let u choose between the m855/ss109 and the m193.
    Also this will give longer barrel 5.56 weapons the advantage they should have, assuming proper ballistics for each of them is included as well. As I've read somewhere else on the forums, M4, long M16s, SIG and FAMAS use same ballistics right now.

    This website also lists the body penetration the bullet needs to have in order to do decent damage so we can use that to help take in the effect of lvlII and lvlIIIa body armor.
