Hi Michael,

If you have such a clear term and want to know what it means,
the quickest way is to enter it in Google. The result of
entering "5.56 NATO" (including the quotation marks to search
only for this exact order of characters) is:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%225.56+NATO%22
The first hit is a Wikipedia entry starting with:
"5.56 x 45 mm NATO, standardized under STANAG 4172, is a
standard rifle cartridge for NATO forces."
