    A while back, around the lunch table at work, we calculated the kinetic energy and TKO value of a 3500lb car hitting a deer at 25mph. As I remember it was astronomically high, but in real life, only effective in a 1 hit kill maybe 25% of the time. Good for a laugh 100% of the time.

    I know Pete Thorniley and he puts a lot of heart into firearms, hunting, casting and reloading. Best FFL receiver I ever dealt with.
    Builds bass guitars and hands out Gideon Bibles in his spare time. God bless you Pete if you see this.
