Must be something about Northern ILL today, like the frigid weather. Just found you folks, so will be stopping by periodically. We (LOML and I) have a number of SA products rattling around from older model V10 & V16 to a Professional, a TRP and EMP and a couple of M1A's.

The obsession continues.

Wha... What the... I... Uh... V16 45 Super LONGSLIDE?!! Sell it to meeeeeeeeee!!!!!! You LUCKY BASTARD!!

Crap, crap, crap... I am soooooo jealous. You really came up with a monster of a gun, even if the pic is bad. Now I have GOT to find a LAR Grizzly or my weenie will shrivel up and fall off.

Folks, if you don't know what that V16 is, it's one of those GRAIL GUNS. People spend years looking for one, and then trade a good 99% functioning kidney for it.

Does it matter that I have over 1000 rounds of JHP 45 Super sitting in a 50 cal can?

John
I'll be right over to help you shoot it up. Is that the 230gr 1200fps JHP?

Yep, 230g JHP, though I can't swear to the velocity. I did load to the spec from Buffalo Bore, so should be close. At some point I will check out the Underwood Ammo loadings, but this batch should last for a bit.

Hmm... Just for comparison sake, your V16 against my Omega, let's compare Hatcher numbers:

10mm - [email protected] = (200*1200/7000)*3.1416*(0.394/2)^2 = 4.2

45 Super - [email protected] = (230*1200/7000)*3.1416*(0.452/2)^2 = 6.3

How about that. 45 Super wipes the floor with a stout 10mm load!

Instead of a Grizzly you could get a Desert Eagle like I did :D. It's just a thought.;)

Yeah, and go around looking like I just stepped out of a bad movie... NO. Unless you're seven feet tall and six feet wide you wind up looking like a cartoon character with one of those mothers in your paw. Almost as bad as an X-Frame Smith with a little bipod hanging offa it!
