Nice Shootin', Tex!

US soldiers, on average, fire 900,000 rounds of ammo to kill one Iraqi insurgent.


  1. "the U.S. military's use of small caliber ammunition has risen to 1.8 billion rounds."

    Is every single small caliber ammunition used by the US military only used in an attempt to kill a mid-eastern gunslinger? Or maybe just in an attempt to kill mid-east babies and women.

    Perhaps a larger caliber would be advised.

  2. Good point, TT. I saw a revised figure of 250,000 the other day, by the way.
