    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    Is that because of the 3rd best cartridge??

    They both carry 10mm.

    I find it really odd that .455 Webley is ranked at #5?

    As it is not based on ballistics, alone if at all, I can stomach the list, but the webley does seem an odd duck.

    They must be high.

    Here's my list,

    44Spl
    45 Colt
    45acp
    38spl
    10mm
    357 mag
    After these every thing else is just crap.

    I figured you'd gently address this.

    Mr. Gman, if I were a betting man I would have just lost big time. I would have figured you as considering 38spl at the top.

    My list would look quite different. Three of those would not be on it at all, and I can't see how .22s get no mention at all...

    Alright, I'll bite Gman. Why 44 spl and not mag? Precursor?
