Smokeless gets you there, and if you don't mind a heavy rifle or recoil then a 300 grain bullet in a .45 caliber without a sabot is the easiest way to do it, if legal.

    Where did you buy those? And how much? I'd give those a try.

    Well, it's impressive none the less. I'd like to get my grubby hands on some of those. Thanks for the reply.
