    .50 caliber still have juice?

    Guess I should know if this big boy still has powder in it. I have some from my Grandpa from WWII all but this one are obviously empty. Is this filled with lead?

    Jimmi, GIVE IT TO THE NEAREST LAW ENFORCEMENT JURISTICTION. Your family will love you for it. Not only is it possible that it will fire, but someone in your home or family may try to pry it apart and possibly get seriously injured. PLEASE! It is not worth the risk. TTC

    Trivia.... Are you familiar with the expression, "Give 'em the whole nine yards!" ? The length of a .50 cal bandoleer (in .50 cal ammo box) is 9 yards long (27feet). About the equivelant to "Give 'em hell!" TTC

    You think it looks loaded still I take it? .. I'm leaning towards filled with lead , but not worth the risk I suppose.. I have no plans on prying of course... But I got kids

    Jimmi,

    You just cannot believe how powerful and destructive that particular round is. Safety, period, not around your home or children. Save it only for those of us who have experience and respect of that round. Happiness and safety was the security of traveling a road guarded with Korean troups with quad-fifties mounted on duece & a halfs. They shoot down planes, or cut enemy troups in half. Through a solid brick wall at one mile plus and blowing apart what hides behind.

    It looks like it is filled with lead because of the bottom view. But I would take it to a gun shop or a police station to make sure.

    Inherently, that cartridge is no more dangerous than any other caliber that is kept in a gun locker, or even a dresser drawer. Yes they are a large caliber specialized caliber, but there it ends. Use it as a paperweight, or put it in a display case, but don't fear it unless it's loaded in a Browning M2.

    I would not speculate if its lead or not.It does look as though the primer was tampered with. Do what TerryC said.
