Examples

  • Not in chambering and wantonness; not in any of those lusts of the flesh, those works of darkness, which are forbidden in the seventh commandment.

    Commentary on the Whole Bible Volume VI (Acts to Revelation)

  • Currently, the only commercially-available rifle in this chambering is the single-shot Barrett Model 99. [edit] PerformanceThe use of a lighter, narrower bullet results in a significantly higher muzzle velocity and superior ballistic performance to the .50 BMG, and is claimed to be even more powerful than the .50 BMG at 1,000 yards (though its power deteriorates below the BMG's after that).

    Odds and Ends

  • I'm pretty peeved that Savage is chambering the 14 AC and 16's for .250 Savage and .300 Savage in the right hand guns and not the left.

    I recently read an article that was basically worshiping the fast "quarter-bore" rifle cartridges.

  • I agree with the posters above on their suggestions, however I might suggest that rather than looking at it as a chambering question, maybe you might want to look at it as an 'action' question.

    Ok, so I'm in the market for a new rifle.

  • (I can only try and imagine what it must be like with automatic weapons!) The great (and in my opinion, best) feeling of loading/jamming the clip into the gun, then chambering a round, and the feel of squeezing the trigger slowly and having this hunk of metal pieces turn into an astonishing and terrifying killing machine.

  • I'm not sure what caliber I want next ... so I'm gonna list what I have and take opinions on what should be my next chambering.
