    That was 10mm ie 40cal not 44

    500 S&W is same as 50 Beowulf just with different rims - semi rimmed vs rebated, and I'd guess that the 500 can be cranked up a little more than the wulf due to the wulfs rebated rim that may shorten up

    50 Alaskan is a mere baby compared to the .510 Kodiak Express.



    Imagine pulling the trigger with 5,000 ft/lbs of energy out of an 1895 Marlin Lever Gun

    Greg,

    What are your thoughts on the 6.5mm Fatso?
