There is a threat that I have been following on a gun that can shoot a round out to 5k and still be super sonic its an interesting read with all sorts of info from all sides.

Its almost 1700 grains and IIRC they are machined solids.

I'll call Huntington Die Specialties tomorrow and order my forming dies...yeah. And I thought making .30 Herritt cases was a pain.
Too much money, not enough to do.

10 pages of reading and not a single picture of the rifle or picture of a grouping...

I wonder what it would take to build one myself?

Hahahaha, a sporting purposes exemption? I guess shooting this out of a rifle could be considered hunting yourself, due to the injuries you would sustain from firing it. :p

20mm vs 50 cal.
http://www.anzioironworks.com/images/20mmwith50a-fp.jpg
From left to right: .223, .338 lapua, 50BMG, 20MM Vulcan
http://www.anzioironworks.com/images/bulletsizes.jpg
The 20mm bore is somewhat smaller at .787 but I think it's more powerful.
Comparing size, the .950 round is significantly shorter. I wouldn't be surprised if they're resizing cut down, 20mm brass shells.

$40 a round? Ouch...

Besides, isn’t anything with a bore over .60 illegal in CA? :(

Especially because it's not merely a metal bullet, but an explosive projectile.

the people that are behind the development are still in the design stages of the gun. There was a couple of pictures of the bolt in the thread but the OP may have taken them down. The thread has been going on for quite a while.

Like I said, 10 pages of reading. I read it all, still disappointing.

A reply from the uploader: "I wish early on I had read wiki before shooting that bad boy...I cracked a rib, bruised my lung...been sleeping on the floor and it still hurts...almost a week and a half later:) The guy who owns it says he blacked out the first time he shot it...if you still want one...which I don't know why you wouldn't...it's sweet. "

The 20x102mm pushes a 1,580 grain bullet at 3,450 FPS out of the M61 Vulcan cannon. I found a site that lists muzzle energy as

(Velocity*Velocity*Weight)/450,240


So for the 20x102 it's (3,450*3,450*1,580)/450,240 = 41,768 ft. lbs energy.
