    Beats the 45-70 by quite a bit, about 45-120 power. Close range thumper...or maybe the most energy for subsonic bullets?

    Big high BC bullet launched at 1k fps through a supressor.....seems pretty sweet to me. I almost went with this round rather than the .300/221 (whisper) but didnt want the added expense of .50 bullets.

    Just got curious today, here is the Amax launched at 1100 fps out to 1k.

    Would this caliber be possible in a carbine type gun? 16" bull barrel...
