There are 20 and 30 round magazines. some even 10 rounds There is also a "BETA Mag" that holds 100 rounds. It uses to drums of ammo that attach underneath it. They are heavy… and only used for mounted m16's or over watch duty.
An M16 is chambered in 5.56 NATO round. Depending on cartridge type the speed can be between 905 m/s (2,970 ft/s) and 940 m/s (3,100 ft/s). A civilian version of an M16 can …be chambered in many different calibers and the speed will depend on cartridge, load and bullet type.
In the 1960's there was the Gyrojet gun which were actually miniature rockets but the caliber was larger than the .223 round of the M16
It depends strictly on the magazine. Some magazines hold 10 rounds, some hold 30 or more.
The size of a given bullet is determined by its diameter, and its weight. The size must match the size of the barrel it will be fired from, and heavier bullets will be longer.… With cast lead bullets, after casting they are pushed through a machine called a die. This squeezes the bullet down to a precise diameter- this is called SIZING.
The M-16 round is a 5.56 mm round. It's smaller than an AK-47 round (7.62mm) A 5.56 mm will kill easily! Hoo-ah
muzzle velocity is 3100 feet per second
The M16 assault rifle was originally issued with STANAG magazines with a 20-round capacity. However, a 30-round magazine has now become the norm. 100-round Beta C-Mags are als…o available. But of course, only one round can be chambered at a time.
Depends on which powder is used, and there are several. If using Winchester W748, it would be about 23.5 grains of weight of powder.
The M16 assault rifle is chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO intermediate rifle cartridge. It can also accept .223 Remington rounds.
In AR-15 Rifles
Most AR-type rifles are chambered for the 5.56x45 cartridge - the standard cartridge used by NATO (and also by several non-NATO) forces for their military's assault rifles. Th…ey can also chamber the .223 Remington cartridge, although a firearm with a dedicated .223 Remington chamber should not be used for military 5.56x45 ammunition.
No. They're not even remotely close to being the same. The two bullets are the same caliber but that is where the similarity ends. The M-16 bullet is about 3 times the leng…th of a 22LR, completely different in shape, about 4 times the weight, etc. Also the cartridge used in the M-16 has more than 10 times the powder than a 22LR, giving much higher muzzle velocity.
