    Really really misleading. How many bullets were actually fired in Iraq? I am willing to bet that MOST of the bullets fired are used in training.

    if my memory serves me from history...50,000 rounds were expended per kill during WWII...taking this into consideration...during WWII the targets were more in the open and compacted compared to Iraq and Afghanistan where the enemy hides in holes and without detectable uniforms not to mention hiding amongst women and children! :2guns:
