    Since there seems to be a bit of interest, and don't want to keep hijacking BigBadJohn's thread, I'll post pics here

    He built the stand, and it has stakes going into the ground to help with recoil.
    The scope is a cheap bushnell, but he said it's been on there for about 6 years now, and hasn't lost it's zero.

    These targets were set up at about 100 yds.
    They're just mild steel, and since they're hanging, the 1500gr rounds didn't penetrate. It did have enough energy to spin the larger steel targets over the stand though.

    I also set up some 55gallon oil drums, and filled them with dirt.
    the 1500gr rounds went all the way through, and out the other side. Also displaced quite a bit of dirt from the barrel

    This steel was 1" thick, and was hit with a 2000gr penetrator. Almost made it through.

    We had another steel target just like it stuck in the ground. That resistance was all it needed to make it all the way through. Unfortunately, it started a fire...
    (kinda put an end to the day)

    Last but not least, some videos.

    The owner demonstrating:

    It normally feeds from a 5 round magazine, but these loads were pretty light, and wouldn't cycle the action. He put WD-40 on them so they'd be easier to get out of the chamber.


    a target: (kinda hard to see, but it creates a pretty good flash when it hits)

    I have a few other videos on my youtube account, shouldn't be hard to find

    I've always wanted to shoot a 20mmm. I've never even seen one in person.

    There's a guy on the EE hurting for money who wants $5k down, then the remainder of the 6xxx for it.

    I've always thought these were cool:

    They are demilled incindery tracers, so they're just solid steel bullets.

    Oh, the Lahti's are different than the 20MM stuff you usually see (IE, those Anzio guns?). Was not aware of this.

    there are a whole bunch of different 20mm cartridges out there
    http://www.quarry.nildram.co.uk/ammotable2.htm
    The Lahti shoots the 20x138B
    The rifle you linked to shoots the 20mm Vulcan round (20x102)
    looks like the vulcan round is slightly faster
