    i roll my own for the GI 50 Cal. on top of it's 21sf frame which stays on ,and recoil isn't bad at all about 45cal recoil.that's factory loads my reloads are milder.love the gun wouldn't part with it.

    I think the round is interesting, but nothing Id fork money over for, just doesnt have any ballistics or energy that is any better than even a .45acp...

    Power is about equal to 45ACP, but 50 caliber is always cool. :cool:

    No, I havent...Have you?!?! Didnt think so. And I dont need someone who has been shot by one of those rounds to tell me that the ballistics are terrible! Does anyone have a picture of one of those rounds after it has been fired through ballistics gelatin? I guarantee in wont be the perfect quarter size shape the company shows you, nor will it penetrate the requisite 12"...

    I didnt know they had redesigned their ammo. Last time I checked the 230gr round only chrono'd out at something like 700fps...I rescind my earlier comments. However I still wont be convinced until I see some real chrono numbers and a few rounds fired into ballistics gelatin...
