Stub marker[edit]

Who keeps putting the "Stub" marker back up? Its not like this lone caliber is going to have 10 pages worth of relevant data. What more information is needed for this to be considered complete?

I did the best I could with the info I could find. If anyone has further info, especially cartridge dimensions, it would be helpful. Arthurrh 02:38, 2 August 2007 (UTC) Never mind, I find them in Cartridges of the World. Arthurrh 08:59, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Most powerful commerical[edit]

I think the 14.5mm Russian is the most powerful commerical, not the .50 can buy 14.5mm ammo on the net, and its much more powerful the 50BMG. If anyone disagrees, post here, or I'll change that in a few days. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rz350 (talkcontribs) 02:20, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Guns over .50 / 12.7mm caliber are generally considered cannons not rifles/small arms. The 14.5mm is not used as a sporting cartridge but the .50 BMG is. Jonno2008 (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 01:38, 30 December 2008 (UTC).

Anzio Ironworks makes a 20mm rifle which uses current US-standard 20mm autocannon rounds, and old WW2 surplus Finnish Lahti 20mms are available to the public. Both are far more powerful than 12-14mm rifles, but as Jonno said, these are considered cannons and not firearms. Fresnel149 (talk) 11:54, 17 January 2009 (UTC)


I've seen information posted online by Airborne Combat Engineer (a generally respectable source for information) that the .700 Nitro Express is not actually .7 inches in diameter, but is in fact closer to .6". Can anyone confirm or refute this? Fresnel149 (talk) 11:57, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

I don't see anything to confirm it - all sources seem to say .700 AliveFreeHappy (talk) 19:17, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Info Box ammo Information[edit]

The infobox should place only factory ammunition. Information garnered from sites which contain relaoding information should not be included. There is no way for one to be gaurenteed that that particular load is safe. In fact, that particular load shown in the info box is unsafe as per Accurate Reloading. We should stick to factory ammunition if the cartridge is a commercial cartridge. Kynoch factory loading is 1000 gr. at 2000 ft/s. Anyone else agree?

Ok I removed the info but if you wish you can copy and past the info down here without having to revert all the way back.DeusImperator (talk) 11:19, 7 September 2010 (UTC) DeusImperator (talk) 11:19, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Possibly Copyright violation[edit]

I was looking for more info and came across this: does anyone know if they mirror wikipedia, or is the article here a rip-off of their page? AliveFreeHappy (talk) 19:16, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
