ABSTRACT
The article describes the use of 5.56 millimeter M855 assault rifle in close quarters battle by U.S. Army troops in Afghanistan. What resulted grew into a lengthy, highly technical and highly detailed study of rifle and ammunition performance at close quarters ranges that involved technical agencies from within the Army, Navy, and Department of Homeland Security. Others may measure effectiveness as foot-pounds of energy delivered to the target.
