Be careful of putting too much stock in references to a battle, such as: At 50 yards range, the matchlocks could hit their targets less than half the time.
In Vietnam, the Americans fired approximately 3,000 rifle (primarily M14 and M16) bullets for every VC KIA.

Id wager that then as now, for every Sgt. Alvin York, there are 100 soldiers, just shooting the general direction of the enemy.
