I was asked by my son, "what is does the 45 in 5.56x45mm stand for?". I am embarrassed to say that I could not answer the question.

After 30 minutes of searching I still cannot answer the question!

So I will ask the experts.

What is the 45 in 5.56x45mm?

According to the specification the length of the case is 44.70mm. Being an engineer I did not round up.

Should I?

After you fire, the case will round up by itself to 45mm.:supergrin:
