I get sick of seeing that statement every day. Someone just recently took down a hog with one of these so called under powered rounds. :facepalm:

Yes I know, and it's happened a few other times. I suppose I've fallen on a bandwagon, as that statement or a variation is posted on the forum constantly. And I probably am not helping when I say it discussing ammunition too. I personally like my 197. It's nice to shoot paper and I'm sure it can handle large rodents and small game (I'm sure because there's proof). I'd prefer some EA but if it was 197 between me and a baddie, 197 is better than dirt and I bet it would do its job.

You have to admit though, seeing what Jay can do, you'd think FN could make something just a wee bit hotter. Why would they make their rounds go slower over time rather than faster? Other than all that "cop killer" round rubbish.

Perhaps FN does make something a wee bit hotter. What about the performance of the LE rounds? Has that data been posted here?

While I am extremely curious on this topic, I meant for Average Joe. :)

I know the story, I was just joking around.

I would just reply with "I pity your ignorance." and move on to another subject. It ain't worth it and don't mean nuthin.

Not if my fart is like a .50 cal and yours is like a .22 magnum.

:D

I agree. I just smile and let them talk. They inevitably run out of boring stereotypes and fallacies to spout about the 5.7, then they ask me what I think. I tell them, "Oh, I guess pretty much all that you said."

Throws them off. Real off.
