Fastest Caliber
#1
Arguing with a co worker about what production caliber has the fastest ballistics...so far I am winning the argument with a 40 grain 22-250 at over 4000 f/ps. What do you guys think?

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Fastest true production caliber? 204 ruger.
32 grain at 4300 or just under iirc. For wildcats, few knock on 5k fps door. One, 5mm/35smc has a 30 grain at 4800, or so they claim and is available at savage's custom shop.

Oh and iirc the 223 wsm just edges out 220 swift. Thats a 40 grain at just under 4300

the 120mm smooth bore is near 6k ft/s.

In the early '70s Remington introduced the .17 Remington, is that still considered a production cartridge?
Muzzle velocity with a 20 grain bullet was in the neighborhood of 4400+ fps.

So you can miss things at a higher velocity than everyone else.
