I know it's off topic, but thought it might be entertaining. Last year I bought a Rolling Block that was supposed to be in 50-90 caliber but turned out to be the longer 50-140 caliber. After finally getting all the dies and components, I got to light it off last month. What a hoot! Here's the round.

I'm using a 720 grain six groove bullet.

Oddly enough, though many state that once you shoot it, you will sell it, it was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. However, my first group of loads use the minimum load that I could find in print; 40 grains of AA5744. If using black powder, of course it's around 140 grains hence the cartridge name. It does kick a fair amount; such that I will have to practice on my concentration rather than anticipated recoil. I did shoot about a dozen rounds with no shoulder bruising. It sure ain't no Whisper cartridge.

Holy crap!
That would leave an impression on a burgler. Imagine the look on some thugs face if you lit that up under his arse!Wouldn't even have to hit'em, just scare'em to death.
