Good to know, thanks. Not sure how relevant that is for this design due to short range and brute force approach. Also pointy being useful here because armour penetration.

The original 5.7 round was supposedly able to penetrate a NATO standard helmet at 80m and be pretty much nothing more than a bruise at 150mm.

The concept was to give the REMFs a weapon with lots of rounds in it that they could spray in relative safety because they weren't going to have to worry about killing their own side with wild fire.

So deadly when the bad guys over ran your rear echelons and got in close, but harmless at quite a short distance if said REMFs panicked and blasted fire all over the place.
