Its only a advantage over some 223 ammo .
The rest of the cheaper than 5.4y steel ammo still has earth friendly boxes so there is no real gain.

I’ve come to the conclusion after extensive amounts of testing and research that 545 is better than 556.

He must be confused by the onset of puberty .
Not sure if he likes boys or girls better .
Cant figure out why hair is growing were it never used to
Even making a simple correct caliber choice is difficult .

Its OK his mom will love him no matter what way he goes .

Who are we to judge what chamber another man puts his load in ?

In this day and age he will be accepted .

He may be the first guy to have a 5.45x39 rights parade with colorful flags and start a movement were all 5.45x39 owners must be accepted by law .
He might even live in a 5.45x39 community were they all share each others loads and ideals .

He will figure it or not . he was given the info he needs its up to him to decide what way he wishes to go .

It's my conclusion that 5.45 is more OG than 5.56. The end.

This is not the end. This is not the beginning of the end. This is the end of the beginning....,

...the beginning of the reign of 5.56.

Your wrong 5.56 has been ruling since about 1957 .
at no time did 5.45 ever rule anything . It has been a also ran entry and will never be more than that .
It s foot note in the history of military warfare .

If it was not for dirt cheap ammo and guns being dumped here buy countries that don't want it and cheap ass Americans scrounging around we would not even know what it is .


5.45 X39 is sort of like finding 70's porn in a dumpster on Betamax tapes and the only player to view it on is not available .

Okay, so it was a cheap excuse to use a movie quote.

Also I was speaking about the thread, not historical fact.

I do like your last sentence though.

I put several magazines of 7n6 through my slr104 today. I was hitting everything I was shooting at. 6”x12” plates at 100 and 200 yards. 12”x20” plates from 300, 400, and 500 yards. Was hitting them both resting on the magazine and free handing. Iron sights mostly and a mag or two with a red dot. I will admit that I didn’t connect at 500 too many times but I didn’t have a scope and could barely see the damn thing. I also came home and put the rifle away without cleaning it. I will probably get to it within a few days or so.

My buddy had his ar out today as well. He did about the same as me free handing and he has a razor gen II 1-6 on top. He made a few more hits at 400 and 500 resting than I did. He was shooting off a tripod and using his scope.

It would seem about the same percentage of shooters who would think of 5.45 as good enough coincides with the same percentage of people that embrace homosexuality.

Custom Savage 5.45x39
One of you 5.45 fanboys should buy this ( seriously ) .

would give you a different way to shoot your stack of ammo .

No mention of accuracy .

Well idk about all that, but what I do know is that 556 is basically inferior to 545 and thats about it. If you care to explain how 556 is better than 545 though pls do tell me.

LOL The Percentage of people who would also use a Venn diagram with lots of colors is also closely related to the same people who's national flag is a rainbow .

The period at the end of this sentence would better represent the number of the shooters who feel 5.45 is the better round on you diagram .


I thought the 5.45 bolt action rifle would be of interest to all these guys who said 5.45 was better , faster, cheaper , better BC,s more lethal and all that .
I figured while you were pretending all that you could pretend you were a sniper and could actually hit something also .

On a serious note I though a few of you guys with large amounts of ammo stashed might be interested in a bolt action for there collection that might offer just a touch more accuracy and some options a AK might . I forget your trained all ninja's and only shoot at people in combat and in SHTF situations . So in reality you don't even need live ammo .

Its all good .
Like a certain other group this thread gives 5.45 fans a outlet to express's there thought's with colorful art, pictures and possibly parades to support agenda .
it good to see them COME OUT and have a voice .

Problem ??

Never was a problem . 5.56 works in every thing, just use it .

You think there is only two rifles in the world ??

Realize there were AK variants shooting 223 before there was a AK 74 and 5.45 .
no reason to use Russia's failed copy that even other combloc countries have rejected .

So then it's settled. 5.45 is the superior round, unless anyone cares to add more?

Like all the tree hugging liberals / anti gun left wingers and rainbow flag waving types spouting out fake news over and over again will not make your ideals correct .
Nothing like a bunch of people trying to collude and consul each other they made a good choice on something the rest of the world knows other wise .

Before this thread is done , the 224 Valkyrie will be out selling 5.45 and there will be more guns for sale chambered in it .
the 5.45 is going no were but down hill unless you see cheap ammo again .
seems more people care about accuracy and availability than what 6 guys on the
AK files think and if its 20 cents vs 21 cents .

You are seriously vested in this debate for some reason. Itís like you missed the 5.45 train and are so butt hurt that you have to convince everyone (mostly yourself) how much it sucks in order to make you feel better. You have a twisted perception of the caliber. It flies out of a barrel at nearly 3000 FPS and hits what is in front of it. Sounds similar to 556 and many other calibers to me. I donít understand your disgust and nobody else reading this thread does either. I hope you can find piece 1biggun. I pray for you.
