    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. [​IMG]

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