The 5.56mm cartridge is easy to tote, and I appreciate the physics. The projectile is undeniably tiny but if fast enough, it still carries plenty of downrange horsepower. This diminutive round sports a certain intrinsic elegance. These fast little bullets revolutionized the way people shoot one another. However, there remains something to be said for raw unfiltered brawn. Millions of words have been traded debating the relative efficacy of Gene Stoner’s 22-caliber combat cartridge. However, nobody seems to dispute the effectiveness of the 7.62x39mm M43 Combloc round.

The M43 was a WW2-era contrivance that followed the pattern of the German MP44 7.92x33mm Kurz cartridge. Sporting a 123-grain jacketed 30-caliber bullet, the M43 is ballistically similar to the Winchester 30-30, the most popular deer hunting round in America. Untold tons of harvested venison stand in immutable testimony to its effectiveness.

In the past, a heavy 30-caliber round meant a bulky gun to fire it. Nowadays thanks to Century Arms, however, you can pack serious .30-caliber thump into a package that will ride inconspicuously inside a backpack. The gun is the rugged Century C39v2 pistol. SB Tactical’s Pistol Stabilizing Brace makes it extra awesome.
