    So i was watching the outdoor channel yesterday and i think it was on shooting gallery. Anyways they were talking about barrett firearms and they apparently have a new upper receiver forthe M107A1 that is chambered to fire a 25mm cannon cartridge. The round itself weighs about 4oz's and leaves the muzzle at 1400 fps. at 2000 meters it can go through 3inches of steel :ooh2:. also they added multiple hydraulic buffers to absod some of the recoil.......... They also talked about the newer 416 round they developed. its a 400gr projectile that flies at 3300fps and is effective and more accurate than the 50bmg at ranges of like 2000 meters but is more suited to soft targets i would imagine. Anyways didnt know if anyone else had seen it or heard anything about it. Thought it was interesting none the less and couldnt imagine what shooting a 25mm cartridge would be like.

    I hadn't (still haven't figured which channel that is since moving here :). Sounds like a heck of a cannon though.

    50 cal is 12.7mm. So this 25mm is for arguments sake 2 times the size of a 50 cal. That's awesome, but I don't want to shoot that one. At least not from a shoulder fired weapon.

    There's a vid on youtube of a kid firing a 20mm. That's plenty enough...

    i think the rifle you are talking about is the barrett xm109 payload rifle it fires a 25X59mm. i could be wrong i know i would hate to be the person that shoots a 25mm auto cannon round.

    I don't know how you could hit anything at 2000m with a projectile going only 1400 fps at the muzzle. The bullet would be falling on the target. You'd be aiming hundreds of feet high.

    IN my humble opinion, it might actually make a pretty good hog gun....:D
