    I hear you; when it comes to women, they run to me like Europeans to Bubonic Plague (or Americans to swine flu). Your help thus far has been invaluable, so thank you.

    I can't find any of the more technical information on the Anzio-50, such as muzzle velocity. Any help would be appreciated.

    Muzzle velocity will depend on a couple of factors, namely the charge/bullet wt combo and the barrel length. There are a few other more minor factors too, ie ambient temp, barrel temp, etc. Any idea what grain bullet you have this guy shooting? You'd be safe to put a 700gr bullet at 3000 fps.


    Here's some info on a HEIAP round too, may help a previous post :

    A so-called "combined effects" cartridge, the Mk 211 Mod 0 High-Explosive-Incendiary-Armor-Piercing (HEIAP) cartridge contains a .30 caliber tungsten penetrator, zirconium powder, and Composition A explosive. It can be used in any .50 caliber weapon in US inventory with the exception of the M85 machine gun. Cartridge is identified by a green tip with a grey ring.

    I recently saw or read that the military is going to replace the 308 rifles with 300 Win Mag. I don't recall the show or publication but they claimed that it is happening now.
