    im talking the biggest bullet you can find at a average gun store . inch, two? or is it more or less?


    j/w because i bet my friend at work $120 that they make 1 inch round bullets and tommorow after we both research we will determine the winner

    At the "average" gun store, you're probably hard pressed to find anything bigger than .50 bmg.

    How big are 12 gauge slugs?

    And what about the huge caliber black power guns. Stuff like I think 72 or 78 caliber.
     
  4. You'd be lucky to find .50bmg at a gun store. I'd say the largest thing you're likely to find would be maybe one of the big bore hunting calibers, maybe even plain old .45ACP. If it's a well stocked gun store you might be able to find one of the .50 caliber pistol rounds.

    12ga isn't nearly close as 1". More like .73 or so. I wonder what 10ga is? :dunno:

    closest you might get is 80-something caliber. but thats just a ball of lead, not really a "bullet"

  9. I believe the question was what you could find at an "average" gun store.

    If you want the biggest you can find anywhere, look into the .950 JDJ.

    That was a really stupid bet and I have no sympathy that you are $120 poorer.

    You guys don't remember the guy taking 12 guage single shots and turning them into big bore monsters? Think 12Guage made into a rifle. Huber magnum I think it was called. Pretty wild shit.

    No mention of nuclear ordnance though and I think the UN just classified 10mm as a short range tactical nuke.
