I see you get an even bigger one on your side of the pond now Bobby , it's called a Vortec . Also in .50 but can use more powder than the Buckhunter. Now that baby will kick ass !

Quigs he'll just have to hang on when firing that thing and then watch to see where the muzzle will end up in order to keep from getting hit on the head.....

Spit, I been meaning to ask...bottom pic says Sannadex mix...curious as to what grade and grains you were using?

Quigs we call it mixed grain as it contains both rifle and pistol powder. Used 90 gr.
