  1. Bloody hell, you must have a fair bit of disposable change to be doing that.

  2. And here's me moaning about the cost of .308!
     
  3. I've heard 5 bucks a round for .50 cal, and $25 for 20mm.
     
  4. That's going to be allot of hand loading!

  5. The man told you that many there were professionals. A man who knows about such things tells me that he can easily get through $3000 of ammo in a weekend...
     
  6. I saw a program where someone ripped 1000 .303 through a Maxim, I was nearly crying at the thought of the cost.
     
  7. When I think what I , personally, have put away over the years at Her Majesty's expense, my eyes water.

  9. Is that the one when they cut the tree down?
     
  10. Nah, it had to have been an M-1 Garand that shoots a real cartridge, not that cut down NATO version. :)

    I guess they needed a bigger case for that fluffy civil war vintage black powder didn't they.

  12. I disagree with VICE describing the weaponry as 'unnecessarily huge'. Shame a similar event can't be held at some suitable desolate location in the UK. I volunteer Liverpool, as nobody will miss the buggers next door
