I didn't realize pistol calibers went as high as 50 cal.
Ever heard of the Desert Eagle? There's a .50 cal AE version of that.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. ~
I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~

I dont know about this one. I shot a wild boar in Africa 7 times with my M-16 and it still didnt die. I had to put one right between the eyes for it to drop.
You have to realize that an M-16 is only a .223 caliber rifle. A very small bullet compared to a .50 caliber.
Regardless of caliber, if you don't make a killing shot, you're never going to find an animal that you shoot. Animals don't watch TV and don't realize that they're supposed to fall over when they're shot. They'll haul butt to a safe place, where they'll either lick their wounds and recover or bleed to death.
