M193 Ball...

Just picked up 900 rounds on stripper clips...its so pretty I don't want to shoot it! I'm going to have to buy more ammo to actually shoot, I feel bad putting good stuff down range.

Every paranoid patriot should have at least one box.

There is something kinda neat about it. It's a lot of powder behind that little bullet.
Compared to that, though, the 7.62x54R looks absolutely massive.

Compared to a 7.62x54R the .50BMG looks even bigger.

Compared to the .50BMG, the 20mm cannon round looks pretty big:

16in is pretty big, I have seen those in person. They weigh about as much as a VW Beetle.

20mm is cool, but I won't be able to get one for awhile they are big bucks and class 3. I would like a Lahti eventually.

Here, load this round in your pistol. Very big bang.
