What?? Bigger the calibre of a bullet, the better the armour piercing!! There is a reason why we have armour plates and BPJs for 5.56 rounds, but not for 7.62,since its really difficult to stop, even at a longer distance! The only downside is it's heavy compared to 5.56/5.45,hence Russians dropped it!!5.45x39 is the most intelligent thing Russians did, it has better Armour piercing capabilities than both 556 and 762, higher muzzle velocity, low weight and better ballistics.
