  1. you could build a few nice rifles for the cost of this. this thing better cook, clean, bring me beer, and get me laid in order for it to be worth it.

  6. Well the new Matt wanted some replies to his post. but I don't think this is what he expected.

    I'm sad that's I am going to be missing out. Apparently the family you breed comes first though. lol.
  8. I'm pretty sure with some common sense, this post was bullpoopy from the start. All bullets penetrate. If it can kill a person it can go through the walls of a house, doesn't matter if it is .22 LR or something a lot bigger. Does Hornady's bullet help? maybe. but I'm not willing to trust my children's lives to some fancy bullet with good marketing. how about just use the 3rd basic rule of firearms, "Be sure of your target and WHAT IS BEHIND IT." That is the only way you can be sure that over penetration wont be an issue. I don't care what reviews and tests show, if my kid's room is behind an armed burglar, I am not going to be blasting away like Rambo. Also, in a high stress situation such as a gun fight, most of the rounds will miss their intended target based on most engagements. Well poop, what good is a bullet that is made to not over penetrate its target if it misses the target. If you truly want to ignore rule #3, I suggest you find some frangible bullets for home defense, as I think this would be the safest bet. But if you want to actually follow the basic rules of firearms, that every amateur to expert should; then use whatever ballistic tip, full metal jacket, hunting, or fancy bullet you want. Besides you are gonna need to go to the hardware store for some heavy duty cleaners to remove the blood stains, might as well pick up some putty to patch the wholes in the drywall. Hope that is a good enough answer for Matt and all future Matts.

    I think the 45 raptor would be best but as of right now, 45-70 government is a lot easier to find. What are you planning on using your rifle for that you want such a big bullet? keep in mind those large, slow moving bullets with poor bcs loose their energy very quickly. judging at quick a few quick looks at what I could find, it seems like .308 is going to have more energy at 200 yards than these bigger bullets, and still even pretty comparable at closer ranges. yes these bigger bullets are gonna create bigger whole that bleed more... bla bla bla. but speed kills just as much, if not more if you can get a large temporal cavity from a lot of speed. Also, these larger rounds are going to have a lot more recoil and cost. 2 cents
