But to answer you, the reason you don't see them issuing those type of rifles (to everyone) is because they are heavy. Their ammo is also heavy and larger. As such they would fatigue soldiers and not allow them to carry as much ammo. On top of this people in confrontation tend to spray and pray a lot. A lighter weapon with more ammo is preferable in those types of situations. That's the only reason though. It's not because the m16/m4 is more powerful at all. I just allows them to carry more.
