While speaking in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday President Biden said, “The bullet out of an AR-15 travels five times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun.”
Ironically, on June 30, 2022, Field & Stream did an in-depth look at the “Five Fastest Rifle Cartridges” and the two AR-15 rounds, .223 and 5.56, did not even make the cut.
Here are the top rounds, as listed by Field & Stream, and the feet per second (fps) they travel upon being fired:
- .220 Swift — A 40-Grain .220 Swift round moves approx. 4,300 fps.
- .257 Weatherby Magnum — An 87-Grain .257 Weatherby Magnum round moves approx. 3,700+ fps.
- .30/378 Weatherby — An 165-Grain .30/378 Weatherby round moves approx. 3,400+ fps.
- .224 Clark — An 80-Grain .224 Clark round moves approx. 3,500+ fps.
- .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer — A 50-Grain .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer round moves approx. 4,600 fps.
By contrast the two AR-15 rounds move at approx. 2,700 – 3,100 fps.
Biden also claimed “the AR-15 just rips the body apart.” MORE
Nobody needs an AR-F15.
I am Biden hear me roar, with comments to dumb to ignore. As I spread ignorance all across the land!
Wait until they discover the 338 Lapua.
Douche-nozzle Joe wouldn’t know an AR-15 if someone clubbed him over the head with one! I’d pay good money to see that, though!! ;^)
Biden must be using that New Math again in determining projectile speeds from firearms.
An ignorant liar is only funny or pathetic when not in a position of power.
This guy is truly dangerously stupid.
The real problem is manipulated vote counting by machines.
Otherwise no one would ever get to his position and stay in power.
Those machines are the destruction of democratic elections and thus the democracy the left is falsely screaming about regarding right-leaning policies.
Of course, I get all of my Ballistic information from people who have never held or fired the AR 15.
His suggestion of getting a F-15 is shear stupidity, but we’ve grown to expect nothing but stupidity from Biden.
Remember this gem?:
“Just get a shotgun and fire it into the air.”
~Joseph Biden, Dumbass
I’m not going to worry about this until an AR-15 round is faster than Superman, who is faster than a speeding bullet. Although this particular circular reasoning would probably make Biden’s brain explode.
I wonder what percentage of the population believes his bullshit? The answer is probably, far too many.
Shitpants Potatohead is the cardinal Weapon of Massive Stupidity
Note the clapping seals he’s surrounded by while keeping George Carlin’s adage about stupid people in mind.
While speaking in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday President Biden said, “The stupid shit out of my pie hole travels five times as rapidly as a load shot out of my decrepit anus.”

“It often happens that, if a lie be believed only for an hour, it has done its work, and there is no more occasion for it.” — Jonathan Swift
HHHMMM I have been reloading the wrong cartridges for the last 48 years. I don’t think he knows which end the bullet comes out of. Maybe if someone would give him and he could demonstrate that he does or better yet DOES NOT.
Neither FJB nor his asshole supporters give a fuck about reality. They don’t live there and never have.
President Uranus Has Projectile Diarrhea Shitpants Buy A Shotgun Fire Two Shots Potato Head.
which a**hole did he pull that lie out of, the one between his a** cheeks, or the one in his face?
Who needs hypersonic missiles when you have AR15’s?
Mr President, are you referring to an AR chambered in 300 ACC, 7.62 by 39, 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Grendel, 204 Ruger, .50 Beowulf, .458 SOCOM, or 556/223? And what grain bullet Mr. President?
“JILL, GET ME THE FUCKOUTAHERE.”
PS the Lapua Magnum is on average about 200 FPS slower than a 556 round, but it weighs a shit ton more. There’s more to ballistics than muzzle velocity.
Who knew? Now I’m thinking I want one.
I have a target shooting pellet rifle, with Alloy pellets it will shoot at about 1200 fps.
I had to take a course and pass an exam in order for me to get a fire arm acquisition license so i could buy this puppy. (Canada).
It was worth it, not sure how many hours my friends and myself have spent sitting at the picnic table taking shots at a foam backed paper target but it has come to the point where i have installed lights for night shooting.
I should have mentioned anything over 600 fps requires a license in Canaduh
Canada sounds like a seething shithole.
A license for a pellet rifle is absurdly disgusting.
We should make a deal with Canada. We take one of their damn trouble making conservative minded shit disturbers and in return we give them ten Libtard Zombies who will go with the communist flow and fit right in.
How would peter the pedo know that? He’s not healthy enough to lift a straw to shoot a spit wad much less a semi auto rifle.
Eric,Have you been paying attention to what is going on in the USA right now.
I love the sound that a Winchester 270 makes when fired. Now that is fast.
The rounds from my .22-250 fly at 4100 feet per second. They will surely knock the lungs out of a prairie dog.
Biden would probably prefer I ditch my AR-15 for an AR-10 because it has a smaller number, it must not be as bad. Idiot. .223 vs .308
