You snap to it!

With all the wildcat calibers, do you have a favorite, do you shoot or want to shoot any of them?

I was looking through my berger book and there are some nice ones in there. They look good on paper… then you get to the barrel life section… And some of them people shoot out just trying to get a good load. I personally liked the idea of the 22-243 middlestead… until, again, barrel life. :frowning:

I have two .460 Rowlands… NO WAY would I put them on anything but a very strong steel frame.

I’m not sure fun is the right word. It is nice to have that much power in that package though.

Referencing the subject of the thread…

FWIW, a bullet is also called a projectile and is the part of the cartridge or round that comes out of the barrel at high speed. It’s just one part of the cartridge.

Sheesh! Can we please stop using hellywood effed up terminology!? They are ignorant anal sphincters and most of them are the enemy, we’re supposed to know something and not take our cues from them! Can we please display the knowledge that we’re supposed to possess?

Sorry, but it’s a pet peeve of mine. The words bullet and cartridge are NOT interchangeable! I have a 30 round magazine that I bet will hold over 100 bullets.

OK, jumping off of my soapbox now.
