Getting tiring to see two grown men in a pissing contest when they can't see the others urine stream!  Who wins?

I'm in agreement on one thing...  If you're going to go Tom, then go!  Getting attacked on an open forum for a difference of opinion or a he said, he said moment is pathetic and boorish...

Maybe, just maybe, you're the reason activity is down around here!

Just my .02 and nothing more!


I'm not the one in conflict with 2 different people on 2 of the few threads on here and I'm not the one telling some one else to leave, so blow me Tim.

Getting back on topic I'll point out that both Italy and Japan started the smokeless era with 6.5 caliber rifles and attempted to convert to 30 caliber because they did not prove effective enough during WWI.
In both cases conversion was halted because of WWII.

Having personally witnessed you harangue lots of folks on these boards over the years is evidence that you're the problem!

As I under stand it an "intermediate cartridge" is one that is less powerful than a full size rifle cartridge but more powerful than a pistol cartridge, the original's that defined the term were the 8x57 reduced to 8x33 and the 7.62 x54 cut down to 7.62 x39.
Even 7.62x51is a reduction of our own 7.62x57 (30-06) .
So how does a varmint round, a high power .22 qualify as an "intermediate" caliber ?
And why are we trying to use it to knock down people .45 acp was invented to stop
<snip>

Could it be by the it qualifies by the virtue of the very first sentence in the very first post?  The question boxed itself in using the terms power and pistol cartridge.  A 5.56 is certainly more powerful than a 45 ACP.
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

You're the one who said you're going to leave. I only suggested afterward that you follow through with what you said you were going to do. Your lack of commitment is disappointing.
