    Fletchettes with sabots might make it interesting. Otherwise it’s a hard yawn from me.

    Just because a handful of people on the Internet share an opinion doesn't prove it is correct.

    I hope someone starts making straight rifled .50 Beowulf barrels for those of us who want to build our own non-nfa gun like this. It would shoot round balls just fine. Maybe even two per cartridge.

    Might be the closest thing we can get to actual cannons.

    Have you seen the special bullets they are going to load for it? They look like tiny footballs with a fletching tail on them; basically like a Nerf football. Make it in 45 caliber and get a bullet mold for one of those fletched projectiles and you might have something.

    The high price tag not withstanding, I can see a tiny niche for this rifle, err, firearm. Folks who are dying to have an SBR or "assault" rifle but live in a place where they are prohibited, although I'm sure laws will quickly be amended or reinterpreted to close that door. I wonder how well this thing would work in a pistol cartridge like 9mm. The stumpy bullet might stabilize more than a long .223 slug, and 4 moa at 50 yards is good enough for most folks with this type of gun.
    Currently casting and loading: .32 Auto, .380 Auto, .38 Special, 9X19, .357 Magnum, .257 Roberts, .30 WCF, .45-70 Gov't.

    Build a 300 AAC Pistol. You don't even need a foam cover on the round buffer tube to shoot it against your cheek. Almost zero recoil. Those in communist states, I'm sorry.....
