    I've seen a couple of new guys out there so I thought I'd put one thread to all the new stuff out there.

    Chained shot dates back to...sheesh, I dunno. It was commonly used during the War of Northern Aggression. I'm under the impression it dates back to shortly after cannons were deployed on battlefields.

    And this guy calls himself an inventor?


    Heck, people have been using shotgun pellets tied together with wire to cheat at certain types of informal turkey shoots where you shoot to break the string holding the prize for as long as I can remember. There's even an arrowhead on the market that deploys four cutting blades in a wide pattern to decapitate real turkeys when hunting them.

    Inventor, my ass. Developer of better materials and methods, perhaps, but certainly not an inventor.

    Interesting. I want to see the video of a deer being shot in the chest and the subsequent post-mortem. Maybe that should wait for the .45ACP or the shotgun version but that's still what I want to see. I have a hard time having faith in the notion that a very light projectile that sheds most of it's weight immediately will work.

    Of course, that's what people said when the Nosler Partition came out...so I'm willing to keep an open mind.
