    That 338 looks like an effective round.

    I would assume it was a Lapua. It could definitely give something a bad day.

    I have seen the .50 and .338 used in ant-pers/anti-material roles respectively and in the right hands hiding behind a car door isn't much of an option.

    I watched a Mythbusters where they stuffed the doors full of phone books. 1 layer was no match for just about anything, stuffed completely full stopped most guns but was so heavy the suspention was bottomed out and the .50 cal shredded everything inside and went right out the back!
