The custom round beside a revolver to show the scale:

The rifle made to shoot it, along with some ammo:

I posted a pic of the round in chat and the first response was “WTF” so it stuck. the case is made but fire forming 50 bmg brass to the chamber and then trimming to 3″ long. then press it into a neck sizer and seat a .700 cal 1132gr cast paper patch boolit.  According to my numbers this gun with its 16.25″ barrel will push that 1132gr boolit to over 2000fps and up to around 2300fps. The gun is made by me from scratch and weighs in at 15lbs. its a single shot with a shell holder bolt. the optic is an Aimpoint comp M4 and handles the recoil like a champ. the grip is a magpull grip made for an AR and the recoil pad is a limb saver.

See more pictures on the Cast Boolits website – HERE

I know the name of the site is “cast boolits” but I find that word (boolit) so obnoxious.

Make a Glock in .700 WTF, then we can talk.

I got a chuckle out of this:

Besides obvious parodies like this, it irritates me how everyone is trying to be clever by calling themselves the 1% for one reason or another lately.

I’ve never played Minecraft, so I don’t know what the fuss is about:

Must be a hell of a game though, because the graphics look terrible.

Is the game worth trying out?What’s the learning curve like? Being a n00b, will I get destroyed?

Good to see Freddiew is adding real brass now… adds quite a bit to the realism.

Coming out for the major game systems in 2013:

Creating hype over a year in advance seems kind of dumb, but what do I know?  Says “Not actual gameplay footage”, but I’m guessing actual gameplay should look pretty close in the end.

I read Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 book, and played the very first game and really liked it.

What’s the concensus now ?  Is Rainbox 6 still cool? Or Are Modern Warfare and Battlefield way better?

in 2012:

This reality driven series follows the lives and times of the biggest names in shooting, including the legendary Jerry Miculek, Xtreme shooter Patrick Flanigan, Guinness world record holder Randy Oitker, and world champion pistol shooters KC Eusebio and Dave Sevigny.

Despite the annoying echos in the commercial, this looks promising.  I’ve seen most of those guys in videos before, and even though they know they are the best, they are VERY humble.  That’s a good quality to have, because you definitely don’t make friends when you constantly tell people you’re better than them.

My guess is that this series will have no need for a “top douchebag” award.

His facial hair and delivery is suspect, but I like the message. Are the facts true though? I have no idea because there are no citations.
