This just sound stupid to me, a person i was talking to yesterday swore that you could get killed by a 50 call 5 feet away. He said it could rip your arm off if it was close enough , but not hitting you. This just seems silly to me...by that logic my 30-06 should be able to take off a finger at 5 feet at the least. His logic was its speed that did it. Is he retarded or am i missing something?
