I can't stand watery milk. It just tastes gross. I think its because my mom used to give us reconstituted dry milk (fat free as I recall) when i was a kid. That stuff was like white water. It was particularly disgusting when mixed with flouridated water from the tap (barf).

The way I see it is if any food is processed it is not good for you. No low-fat anything in my diet.

How about a .05 for when I want to hunt bugs.

My son has one, he uses it for rabbits. Head shots remove the skull and all of the contents from the head. Absolutely accurate and deadly. Much more efficient than the .22 LR.
I, too, heard they were pretty powerful.

Alton Jones did a number of stange wildcat cartridges- the .14 AJ is indeed a .22 necked down.

There were several "smaller than 22" rounds- the 4.25 Lilliput, and the smallest CENTERFIRE auto pistol made the Kolibri- in 2.7 mm and 3 mm. Here they are- 2.7mm is about 10.8 caliber

I think "kolibri" mean hummingbird or something close to it.

I don't really drink it because drinking milk in general is yucky to me. I like my water. It's more for my cereal. I used to use 2 percent growing up and then my ex would only drink skim so I got accustomed to that. Other than milk, I use full fat dairy products for cottage cheese, sour cream etc.

I like ice cubes in my 2%; i had a glass of milk at mom's not too long ago, bout gagged; she had found some dairy rollin their own jugs of non-homogenized but pasteurized FULL FAT. If i want that much milk fat, i will spread it on my toast.

Gross!! She could have warned you first. A guy I work with raises goats and drinks their milk like that. I always so no thank you when he offers.

Iv come across another of his small odd ball chamberings-45acp necked down to .22. I was told it was his work anyways. It didn't have anything stamped on it. I had to mic it to even find that out.

I drink full fat goat milk. A co-worker's friend has dairy goats and that's what I've been drinking. It's good and easy to digest. Right out of the goat, filtered, then sold to me. It's delicious.

Colibri does mean hummingbird in Spanish. However, the Kolibri pistol was made in Europe.
