    i sure hope those weren't loaded with the dreaded "cop killer" rounds.

    does that come with a folding stock?
    does it use a hi cap mag?

    Well, I've never said I was infalliable, lol. I might have been right in a different instance as my grandfather was a gunner's mate on a much older battleship with different size guns. Either way it is impressive as hell!

    6 x 110 = 660lbs

    660 / 2.2 = 300kg

    300kg of explosives... umm, *YIKES!* ;a

    Rzrbk8, I wasn't trying to be a smart*****, I just happened to see and learn about the charge on the History Channel...and I was truly amazed. Here I've been trickling up to 17-23 gr of powder loading .45LC and such, or 45-50 gr for .308! Let's see...23 gr @ 7000 gr/lb = 0.0032857 lb. Jeeeez that seems puny!

    It's all good Gunrnr! I thought you had first hand experience or something. It always goes to show you that when you think you are right, there is always someone out there that can prove you wrong. Take care.

    It's black powder IIRC, the grains are the size of your thumb.

    All this is out of memory from when the Iowa popped a turret in the early 90s...
