How 'bout a .46?; 240 gr Bullet @ approx 1200 ft/sec. It would be better than a .45 w/230 gr Bullet at 860 to 950 ft/sec., and less cumbersome than the .50.

The old question of "Why do you carry a .45?" And answered by: "Because they don't make a .46."

Really considering a conversion kit for my xd.45. Would be a great pig gun.

A round with the power of a 454 casul but in a cartridge truly designed for a semi auto gun.

.338 Lapua has the record for longest sniper kill shot. Just build a Thompson Center and work on speed loading it.

I know this is an old thread,and this may sound far fetched but I've actually seen the c4 thing tried. A good friend of mine , a marine , was using the stuff during training. This was back in 1991. Somehow he found himself with some while on leave. He had completely stuffed a hollow point 12 gauge slug with the stuff. We shot it into a large tree and..... it didn't do a damn thing. I believe he only had one, and maybe the result would have been more dramatic if shot into steel or something completely solid but in that instance absolutely nothing happened accept a 12 gauge dia hole in a tree. If it could have caused the barrel to blow up in our faces(which I'm sure the possibilities were there) I guess once again god smiled down on idiots. That's been over 20yrs ago and I still wouldn't want to be the guy who saws up that tree. Talk about kick back!

You mean something like this?

I would love to have a .45acp neck down to a .42 cal.... Something that does 1100-1300 fps with a 190 gr. Bullet.

platform would be a glock or double stack 1911. Or a .50 neck down to a .45 that would be my back wood gun

In reality, there isn't much you can dream up that hasn't already been tried at least half a dozen times.
