Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

Default 50 cal vs 454 casull

What cartridge is more powerful? Does the 50 cal supercede the 454 Casull? I know the 454 Casull contains rifle primer so the CPU is 60 ksi but how does it compare to a 50 cal or even a 46 or 48 cal? Just curious.

according to Wiki in pistol rounds...

.50 GI
.500 Wyoming Express
.500 S&W Magnum

Plus a few older ones.....

But to answer the posters original question, again quoting wiki...

"Until the introduction of the .460 Smith and Wesson Magnum, and the .500 S&W Magnum, the .454 Casull was the most powerful commercially produced handgun round on the market, significantly eclipsing the newer .50 AE in both power and availability.'

Yeah really..

The 454 is still a powerhouse compared to some of the other .45cal, 475cal, and .50cal handgun cartridges.

Note the = < > to which the 454 Casull is relatively comparable. Custom loads can vary results.

454 < 500 S&W Mag
454 > 500 S&W Special
454 > 50 AE
454 => 500 Linebaugh
454 = 500 Linebaugh Long
454 > 50 Bowen Special
454 = 500 Wyoming Expess
454 =< 50 Beowolf
454 > 50GI (is closer powered to a 45ACP)
