Ammo limits are the path to realism, not restrictions on the use of auto fire.
If you set and stick to strict limits for ammo, the use of full auto will moderate it's self.
Some of the best games I have run with respect to feedback set a strict ammo limit of 300 rounds FOR THE ENTIRE GAME for rifles, and 600 for support guns. over game play of 10 hours duration.
When you load up in the AM all the ammo you will have , every trigger pull is stressful, it's this stress that is remembered as fun at game end.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
