JMD statement shows a complete lack of knowledge about the M-60 machinegun. If a "cone" of fire was three feet at 50 meters how is possible to walk tracer fire in a line out to 1,000 Meters? Sure there is dispersion, that what machine guns are meant to do. To provide a "beaten zone" to cover an enemy's postion and provide supressing fire for fire and maneuver elements. Textbook stuff to a trained Infantryman. Point targets are easily engaged with an M-60 at 800 meters. I've done it.
