Default The round you would hate to get shot with

Ok don't say any as we all know we would hate to be shot . The question is which one are you guys the most afraid of ? Does not matter where other than a head shot as we all know the outcome of those regardless of caliber . It can also be a particular type of ammunition , like the hexalite slug or what ever its called
For me I would have to say the plain Jane .22 lr due to the lack of ass is has to go thru or to mushroom , hits a bone bounces this way then that way .
Dad shot one in the house when he was young , it went thru the kitchen floor and out of the closet at the other end of the house .

.50 BMG. There are a LOT of survivors of being shot with 22s (one of them is typing this) and just about everything else there is out there- but very few survivors of being hit with a bullet the size of a cigar.

A minie ball. As for an actual metallic cartridge probably a .50 BMG aswell.

Id much rather be shot with a 22 as to be shot with the 577 t-rex.
Here it is compared to a 308

I think a 12 gauge 3" with #4 shot would give me a bad hair day!
Arrows and hatchets still scare me worse.

After thinking about it, I believe that I would very much not like to be shot with any round. Now if you were to throw it at me, I think I could deal with most rounds

Any 7.62/.30 caliber rounds scares the hell out of me...mean enough to crush bone and tear flesh but fast enough to exit and leave you alive, mangled and in pain for the rest of your days....

If you can dodge a wrench............you can dodge a ball!

A game of dodge ball with .50 bmg could be quite painful as well.

I'd have to say that no foreign objects entering my body at any time except under the influence of a surgeon who has no chance of paying off his student loans in his lifetime because he is so extensively trained would be my best policy.

But still... many convicts agree, the scariest sound to hear when breaking into a house is the "schtick-schtick" of a pump gun. Number 2 scariest sound is a dog barking. I would hate to be hit with ANY shotgun, 410, 12 it doesn't matter. Heck I wouldn't even want to be hit with .22 snake shot at close range.

What's that old Texas Ranger quote? "A hit with a .22 is infinitely better than a miss with a .45."

Not getting shot at all would be my preference. I don't expect any of you will do any empirical testing to find the answer.
