A .223 is not designed to kill in military applications. If you kill an enemy combatant, you have taken one man out of the picture. If you injure him (the job of .223) you take out him and at least two others to provide aid/get him off the battle field. The jist of it is a kill eliminates one, and injury eliminates 3. At least this is what they taught us in Cavalry school, Ft. Knox, KY.


I am not doubting what you are saying they told you, but for the life of me I can't understand this concept. The way I see it, if you shoot to wound, the person you wounded can still shoot back at you. Must have been a liberal who came up with this brilliant idea.

No it actually makes sense. A wounded soldier requires more resources than a dead one.

The "wounding to tie up enemy resources" concept goes back many, many years.
My grandfather, whos been deceased for many years, was taught that concept during WWII. I imagine it was discovered a long time before that.
