There was an excellent article in my new American Rifleman mag concerning the top Seal sniper with 160 confirmed kills.

These guys are all wanting to go to bigger calibers for stopping power. Its quite common, he says, to find needle tracks on dead insurgents from drug use. It takes more to drop these living zombies I would imagine.

Its a good article.

And if you aren't a member of the NRA, well, shame on you. I hate all the flyers and political bs, but its a numbers count thing to show the politicians how many voters there are in the group.

Needing bigger calibers makes perfect sense. The heavier the slug the more retained energy and therefore the better the terminal ballistics. I remember years ago reading an article by Craig Boddington. In it he mentioned that the .375 H&H magnum and the 45-70 government kill well beyond, and far better, than what their paper ballistics suggest.

The reason ,I believe is that they are so big in diameter. A 45-70 doesn't need to expand to leave a huge wound channel and neither does the .375. The 45-70 with it's big wide met plate causes a serious amount of shock even at 1300 fps. Penetration actually decreases above 1600 fps.

They both penetrate in feet not inches and at low velocity as well. The problem is they are both short range weapons and kick like the devil when they are loaded hot. Neither one would be of use at close range in a war zone since they would pummel the shooter into submission in a very short amount of time.

And yes, I do know that the 45-70 was the military round way back when. Those guys were far tougher than we are I think. I can't imagine firing a 45-70 with a 500 grain bullet all day long or 100 times in a row in a battle.

If they are forced to use non-expanding bullets over in Iraq it makes sense that they aren't getting the killing power they need therefore they should be using .30 caliber at a minimum. But the then there is the problem with recoil and the weight of the ammunition.

I made several accounts to try and sort out who's passing rumors now will you take the bitching about me to the appropiate thread or you don't care if I ignore you too ?

Finally someone who comprehends what I was trying to say. But yes there lye the problem of heavy ammo. I think thats what the .300 blackout was being marketed towards. A cqb 30 caliber projectile with less weight.

Yea I'm parnoid to the hilt, just can't help it.... (sarcasm) I was asked by someone why you two keep posting BS about me on all the threads and was informed some people had recieved a pm about me. Being's your going public about it then fine just keep it obivous what your trying to do. As far as high post counts there are no rules against it and only one person had an issue with me besides you and jeff because once again Jeff convinced him I'm on here to piss people off. You can go around reading my post all you want but I am not getting sucked into you guys BS again I won't do it. You complaining about me being a bigger man just shows that you want an argument, you want a fight. I am not on here for that. I am on here to learn, and help others if I can and express my opinions whether or not someone want's to take that personal I have no control over. I am not attacking anyone directly if I say something about a gun I do not like that is not an attack on a person. I used to not like GLOCKS but guess what Ive been thinking about a GLOCK 20 lately. Everyone has opinions whether their right or wrong they should not be attacked personally. I apologize for the antics I did before I shouldnt of stuped so low but it wasn't brought on by choice. If you or anyone else don't want to except and maybe apologize for your side of it fine, but I ask you to please stop bitching on every thread about me its quite annoying and I don't do it about you two. I'm sure whether people agree with you about me or not are gonna get sick of the constant bitching. I would it leads to nothing. I'm here to post/chat etc there are no rules on number of post per day that I'm aware of. If there was I'd assume it cut you off. Sometimes I might not get on here for 2 or 3 months so it ain't a big deal. Now I'll ask you one more time is this gonna end or do I have to ignore you ?

Didn't you say you were going to ignore him about one thousand pages ago?

Man, I get so tired of the drama on this site anymore. It used to be such a civil place to share information on the Mini platform.

I am awaiting a response to see whether or not its going to end and if not I will set them on ignore, hopefully it will end without that, either way once I get my response (formal or informal,good or bad) you won't see me posting the the drama anymore. Again Sorry.
