How come the author has the 1903 Springfield with a range of 600 meters but the M-1 Garand has a range of 402 meters? They fire the same cartridge. Also, the M-14's range is only 402? And the M4 is 600? I call "foul" and claim anti-.30 bias.
Just a headstart on the comments you're going to get: The Springfield rifled musket was 1850's technology, not 1800's. The Henry was 1860's, not 1850's, and the Winchester 1873, not the 1866, was called "the gun that won the West". Also, the Henry and the '66 and '73 Winchesters all used pretty much the same action, IIRC. Allowing for the US-tilted viewpoint, the 1886 Winchester would have been a better example of progression. As I said, just a start on what I',m sure others will say.
