    I've seen .50's do a lot of damage, some of it pretty funky. I don't know if the video is real or not, I lean towards thinking it is. There are clearly recognizeable limbs on a couple of the videos. As far as limbs not being torn off with a .50, there guys would probably argue. But then again we didn't see what hit these guys either soooo....

    If you have a weak stomach, pass on these pictures. If you hurl, you are the one having to clean it up.

    Been pondering this quite a bit - and could not but help wondering if there exists an accurate ''sniper'' platform for a 20mm ....... now one of those would be likely to blow the crap outa the target!

    P95Carry, one of first jobs was to take care of 20mm mounts with optic sights, this was some time ago...a long some time time ago may I add. They were removed from service as whatever would attack was just getting to fast and you could not track them and shoot very well.

    Don't they have a 30mm system either in the works or in the field?

    Hmmm - server's doin' funnies again tonight.

    OK - well I am not sure if this vid will upload successfully - it may be too big but - it is a chunk of vid from the P Dog site ''Dogbegone''.

    I throw it in because it shows how ''explosively'' the lil' critters can be seen to ''react!! This from high velocity but relatively smaller cal bullets - and at ranges well out it seems.

    Hmmm - seems to have gone up Ok - 1.65Mb BTW.

    Seems that we have some people here that still believe that a single hit in the upper arm with a .223 FMJ will rip your whole arm off. I respect your opinion. I just don't agree with it.-------

    ummm. big rifles

    Barret designed a 25mm "payload" rifle in the last few years. It was supposed to shoot the OCSW 25mm grenade rounds. This includes airbursting arounds and such.

    The rifle was marketed as a "payload" to avoid the evil sounding "sniper."

    Yeah...what wonderful things...
