We've already explained this and I retracted my statement...but preference for me is that the
.50 Cal Sniper Rifles are useless...at least for me....far to much recoil....rounds are to

Well a ban on .50 I wouldn't really dislike...I mean for civilian use it's basically useless
and to damn dangerous as a gun. Condoning the banning of any gun could leave you with nothing
more than a s...

4227 in my opinion never was a good powder for a revolver because it will always cause the

Yeah, I would suggest using a round, dummy or not, to set head space. That is how any hack
