..favorite caliber to burn..
« on: August 13, 2019, 06:58:38 AM »
.
aside from favorite firearm what caliber is your favorite to shoot ?

(I believe I know what TXAZ just might say..... :th_thicon_idea:)

mine happens to be .357mag - powerful attention getter that makes paper targets "flutter" on the range

your response ref 9mm got me thinking Ship - so, just for grins, I checked all my handguns to see "what caliber" they are chambered to shoot, percentage-wise :

9mm............................31 %
.357 & .45 tied at...........14 %
.22...............................10 %
.380, .40 & 9x18..............7 %
5.7 & 7.65..................3 1/2 %

(yeah, I know, doesn't quite = 100 %, but I'm lazy)

9mm = most rounds down range but Boomer is the biggest blast.

It would be a toss-up between 45 acp and 44 spl. for me.

only "against the crowd" because it's "your" favorite.....I personally have 12, 20 and 410 firearms

(and for those of us who "forgot" how the gauges are "measured", here's more shotgun ammo info than you'll ever need, or probably want :

But its not that much of a range gun but sure is fun with some melons and the like.

In rereading the OP question, the answer would have to be a 23mm ZU-23 anti-aircraft fun at the Norinco test grounds outside Beijing.
The whole fricking gun platform recoils as the tracer headed toward a mountain about 5 miles away.
More fun than Boomer but donít think there are any ranges around here that would let you shoot it.
