    Nope, larger than .17, and smaller than .25 acp.

    2000fps out of a pistol length barrel is a clue though.

    Yes, very accurate too. Similar to the 5.7, but in a fs 1911 it fits my hands better.

    It sure just looks like a .308. I know Thompson chambers a break open single shot in 308, 3030, 45-70...maybe more

    Ah... Yes. A Mr. Jones creation.

    The largest I've ever launched out of a Contender is the 35 Remington.

    Mine started out as a 35 Rem , but I had it rechambered to a 358 JDJ after several light primer strikes due to head spacing issues with the small shouldered 35 Rem . The 358 JDJ is made from a 444 Marlin case necked down to .358 . The head spacing issue was solved with the rimmed cartridge . The cartridge was an awesome up grade that handles heavier bullets with greater velocity . The current load is 225 gr Nosler ballistic tip @ 2300 fps , with under 1/2" accuracy @ 100yds . I've used the same hand load for over 20 yrs and it never disappoints. This is 2 shots !

    Very nice!!!

    I've heard of that problem with the 35 Remington, but have not experienced it. I also have a 30-30 A.I. barrel that I have not used yet.

    Wooohooo! I'm no exotic ammo expert. But a friend of mine let's me shoot his Mosin occasionally.
