indarwinsshadow: Wouldn't it just be easier to find a way to up the velocity of a smaller round, instead of screwing around with something the size of a soup can? I'm sorry, but the rifle in the video is impractical.
kroonermanblack: Glockenspiel Hero: Biggest? Really? My photos from the range are back at home, but they look kind of like this105mm rifle. ~1500 m/s (~ 5000 ft/s) muzzle velocity with sabot rounds. Don't know the exact projectile weight, but lifting the old M392A1 round on my desk it's on the order of 15 pounds. I suppose you could argue centerfire, but the firing pin does contact the round in the centerAnd yes, firing one is exactly as awesome as you might think.Because YOU had a tank. That is a cannon. That is not a center fire rifle.This guy, has a center fire rifle.
Egoy3k: Why would you show that without some shots of the effect on target? I want to see what this does to a brick wall, steel plating, or a car.
Endive Wombat: Wait till some congress critter gets a hold of this video and proposes a ban on it/never mind the point of entry cost in procuring said gun and ammo is WAY beyond the reach of most criminals...
