If that were true the military wouldn't keep spending millions of dollars upgrading the 5.56 round (55gr, 62gr, 69gr, 77gr and now the non-hollow-point-hollow-point) trying to get 7.62x39 lethality out of the 5.56.

I work daily with Marines and have talked with several that have personal experience with putting a round in the chest of an insurgent that didn't take them out.
