    Sounds like someone either got confused (5.56 and 7.62), or made a typo.

    The 5.7x28 is 5.62 at the grooves.

    The 5.45x39 has 5.62 bullet.

    I was reading a book and the hero had a short barrel 5.62 mm M-16. I know you can't always believe what you read but don't people research the subject they write about or don't the editors use fact checkers anymore?
    And before I asked on the all mighty GT i googled the subject
    and it showed me the same thing you posted. So is the military using a special secret ammo that is only a couple of rch's larger than the nato 5.56 to vanquish tangos or is it a typo?
