Steel jacketed .22's? Not in my neo if you please.
But .... during my experimental years (!!?)
I did concieve of a SS rod inside a .38 special.[+P load]
pretty neat it was. NOW the Army guys use them in their tanks, great for piercing armour..
38 sp.=.357, SS rod .125. I thought about Tungsten but the heli-arc rod is quite small.
The tank rounds are made of depleted uranium. Harder than steel and are hyper-velocity,close to 4,000 fps. Upon impact it creates a chemical reaction of sorts with the armor plate and literally burns a hole thru the armor. Depleted uranium is a great penetrator. It is also used as the core for the 20mm and 30mm rounds for the GAU cannon on the A-10 Warthog and helicopter gunships.

Morning friendlies :-)

Had a great weekend. My friend phoned me up early Friday evening and invited me over, I spent the night and we had breakfast as a restaurant, and rented a couple of DVDs. I left just after 17:00 on Saturday afternoon. Yesterday was my sister's birthday, so we had the family over, and made a "potjie" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potjiekos )

Had a good night's rest but I'm still tired, lol.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and wishing all a good start to the week (*hug*)

My dad just sold his gun loading table over the weekend and I helped him load it, damn that thing's heavy! It's sad to see someone sell stuff they love to do, but he hasn't used it in years anyway.

Have you any idea how big a boat I'd need to shoot off a 30mm?

What do you feel when you blow up an enemy ship with a 30mm?

Well, I hope at least he got some good dough for it.

I agree, it's sad to see someone get rid of their enjoyments.

Perhaps he'll find something else he enjoys as much!

Thank you, same to you :-)

I'll be starting my new anti-depressants tonight, so here's to it working better than my old ones. I have to remember to make an appointment with my shrink again for sometime this month. And have to somehow find the tons of money to pay for previous visits, that weren't covered by the medical aid (I'm still on my parents' med aid until mine starts working, have to wait 3 months at least) So because of the med aid rejecting to pay for the previous two visits, I now have to pay double for both. And I only have half of ONE of them available. Ugh, why is money always such an issue?! Lol

With the worst day of the week done and dusted, I wish everybody a wonderful Tuesday.

I'm glad to anybody beat the Yankees. The Red Sox, The Orioles, even the jays.
I happen to be a Rays fan you see. How 'bout that Longoria? Best 3rd. baseman or what?
Morning, Ed ... well, I can say he is hot on the bat for a 3rd baseman and can play the offense pretty good ... so I say he's a keeper but 6 years/10mil ... I'd give that to him before I'd give A-Rod a dime, LOL ... Enjoy your Rays and I'll keep rootin' and tootin' for my Astros >sigh< and my Rangers ... don't laugh ... at least they're in the same division this time, hahaha ... Have a nice day! FC <3 ...
