    The ft/lbs at muzzle confuse me having been over here and still going to school at the time of decimalization, means that I have to start re-thinking things through. I do it all metric in Joules...

    I really like the Sabot, although they are Illegal here due to the lack of any imprinting of the bore on the projectile, any real use would only come if you were using projectiles of depleted uranium (AP) on a regular basis and didn't want any lasting barrel damage, or to prematurely wear it out.
