The 5.45×39mm is an example of an international tendency towards relatively small-sized, lightweight, high-velocity military service cartridges. Cartridges like the 5.45×39mm allow a soldier to carry more ammunition for the same weight compared to their larger and heavier predecessor cartridges, have favorable maximum point-blank range or "battle zero" characteristics and produce relatively low bolt thrust and free recoil impulse, favoring lightweight arms design and automatic fire accuracy.
