223/556 nato is the same diameter as 22 but one weighs less and is not flying as fast.

If you imagine 22 impacting at a closer range, because it is not flying as fast, the round will actually compress on impact and make a bigger entry and possibly exit hole than a 223 which would just rip through because of the speed at which 223 flies at.

Its why my .222 isn't much fun unless its on a bench at a long range. Up close, it has too much velocity to make things jump. And its too expensive to make plinking cans any fun.

For close range fun and making shit disappear nothing is more fun than an old 12 gauge.
