1. 5.56NATO can't penetrate windshield of cars. 2. M193 and M855's ability to inflict large cavity doesn't work in real world. 3. 9mm has no stopping power, while .45ACP stops bad guys everytime, even one hit at fingers. 4. 7.62NATO rifles can't be controlled when in full auto. 5. M1919 is tactically inferior to MG42 simply because of its slower rate of fire (and not eronomics, weight distribution and must-have-tripod design). (This one should send to Gunny Ermey.) and the list goes on so we can keep and show goes on.

trying to work out how to do the experiments..
have to get gunter von hagens involved really
 
have to make a ballistic gel body round a bony torso, along the middle youd have to put a length of hosepipe and a fist sized balloon ,- all under presure with fake blood
measure the blood loss in a standard time after a hit
that covers 2 and 3

Of course theoretically no bullet can penetrate the windshield of a car if fired from long enough away and/or at the wrong angle.
