CNN editors should use more than spell check before posting something online. (note the 2nd headline under "Midwest")

 -

In the article correctly describes having found 100 rounds on the man. I can no longer find the article. as you can see from the EI snapshot I took this pic at work so I could post later. I knew it wouldn't be around for long.


And if it was correct, WTF kind of weapon takes 1 pound rounds. Who does this guy think he is, Duke Nukem? That is one hell of a hand cannon he had with him.

Well when i served, the M60 with 3 belts was roughly 65 Lbs.

Each round for my 45 is about 5 oz.
add the clip 3 oz. and each clip is 7 rounds....

Remington ammo chart

the heaviest was the 50 BMG cal Rifle the best weapon i ever carried was the Heckler and Koch MP5 0-1-3
That thing was nible with 45 ACP rounds you had knock down power.
