[QUOTE=napalm_bomb;34508183]Good thing I live in Louisiana.[/QUOTE] As do I. I really want to go shooting, but the last time I checked .300 mag ammunition is too expensive to go shooting for fun. I really need to find a .22 or something, all I have is some old ass, tiny revolver.

[QUOTE=TacticalBacon;34508796]I think they did that on Mythbusters once. Except it was bullet-proofing a car with phonebooks. IIRC, a couple layers of them was enough to stop everything short of high-powered rounds like .338 Lapua, .416 Barrett, etc.[/QUOTE] The phonebooks didn't stop the 338, 416 or 50.

(hence why I call it crap) box of truth tests SS109 With the ~13 inches of paper they were using in that experiment, they could have penetrated it with .30-06 AP or even 7.62x54R out of a dragunov or nugget. Instead they opted for big-ass catridges like the .338 lapua (or was it norma?) even .45-70 works .30-06 with AP ammo [img]http://www.theboxotruth.com/images/31-21.jpg[/img] aww yeah bizznatch

That's cool and all that a shit ton of phone books can stop bullets, but if you stack enough shit in a row it can stop bullets. Do the same for bricks, steel, ceramic, etc and it does the same thing. Its a cool concept but entirely unpractical.
[QUOTE=PrusseluskenV2;34512206]Brotip: 7,62x54R is usually recognised as slightly more "powerful" than .30-06.[/QUOTE] yeah but it tumbled more in paper, only penetrated 15 inches in both shots because it was deflected (on both shots) [url]http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot31_4.htm[/url] so less effective for the sort of thing they were trying.
I think the funniest thing mythbusters did was testing shooting through a scope and into the other snipers eye. They didn't use match ammo or test elevation and expected it to go through.
[QUOTE=PrusseluskenV2;34512206]Brotip: 7,62x54R is usually recognised as slightly more "powerful" than .30-06.[/QUOTE] Actually, .30-06 is slightly better, but the difference is so minimal it's barely worth mentioning.
When it comes to military rounds they're either very similar or 54R has a slight advantage. Obviously factory loads and handloads are more "powerful" considering .30-06 has more powder capacity.

If you saw the episode, and I remember it correctly when retelling it, the Mythbusters didn't just slap a fuckton of phone books onto a car and shoot at it, I'm pretty sure they did penetration testing at a range before covering a van in paper and driving it in the middle of an abandoned mine, then shooting at it.

[QUOTE=Gubbinz96;34518019]Nothing very new about that, they've been out for a good few years.[/QUOTE] Well, it's the first time I heard about it. That magazine looks incredibly good on a traditional-looking rifle, I wonder why they haven't made something similar for a less gimmicky round.
Thanks! It will be another two-three months before I get it though, as I'm starting the hunting proficiency course on Monday, having the final exam sometime mid-March. Then I'll send my application asap and buy it as soon as I get it returned. I think I'll go buy the silencer sometime next week so I can experiment with DuraCoat. :v: I get the rimfire silencers at my local sporting store for just around 60 bucks, so I'll most likely buy two so I can use the modules from the second one on my first one (making a total of 8 modules).
