19. 7.62 x 51 or x 63 sure,
but x 39 --- no way, dude! 5.56 x 45 is better and lighter. Besides, in this hemisphere, it is 5.56 that is more likely to be picked up on the battlefield.

But then again, I will take the 7mm magnum over any of these rounds for long distance work --- yum, yum! (.460 and .50 are also very nice --- but very heavy.)
