Hornady

Did some research and the Hornady website (Hornady makes the round) considers the T/C .30 a separate round.

Rice

I have canned food as well, but 1 cup of rice, boiled, has about 1600 calories. Throw in a handful of beans and you won't starve. Throw in some hot peppers and it's almost enjoyable.

Shooter

Valid points, and exactly the kind of critiques I'm looking for.

Rounds down the barrel means a field strip and a thorough cleaning within 24 hours. Doesn't matter how many.
