In modern parlance the US GL is attached to the barrel of an assault
and bloops rounds out to about 300 meters. The AGL version (the Mark 19
AGL) is 
a heavy weapon meant for a tripod or a vehicle mount. The grenade is 
higherpowered than the simple GL round, but its range is really only
about double to 
600 meters or so. The SAW on a bipod can be accurate to at least 800
maybe a thousand.
