    If you are the type of person who would chop the barrel on a Ruger No.1 and fit a suppressor then I can only say that you have an impure mind and need help and soon, Berg. I hope this is not what you actually meant ??.

    With a 20" barrel already threaded, I would leave it at that first to try it and see how she behave. Then I would consider maybe shortening the barrel and rethreading.

    Blasphemy Friwi ! Whilst cutting the barrel on a No 1 might be legal in this country, it is morally wrong and should not be allowed !!

    yep nice as it is I like the ease of a short barrel with a suppressor for bush hunting.new bergara is getting chopped so the dpt magnum suppressor will be about 10mm off touching fore end think the barrel will be around 14 inches long.

    Nice shooting Rossi, impressive damage at subsonic velocities! Must get around to buying some trailboss and running some in mine.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    just a bit gory . . . i wouldnt put it on Facebook

    that old saying a picture is better than a thousand words comes to mind . . it is a graphic demonstration of what a Big Flatpoint can do even when its traveled some distance and lost some of what little speed it started with.
    its not some super slippery AMax, more a flying brick, so some people won't be beleivers unless you show them the pics . . . . & even then some wont get it.
    if i have time i will try for to put the bullet thru a leg bone . . . its not a must but it sure helps if you can to do maximum damage.

    a bit off topic . . . that 50 S&W contender i mentioned earlier thats on TM has certainly got my interest, some seriously BIG bullets / designs / molds out there that may work in it.
