Hmm.. no four hundred forty five???  You know, slightly smaller than a S&W 500

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

Also when I show it to someone and say 445 they look confused “you mean 454 ??”

NO…poke 445, it’s like a 44 and a half !! big-grin

Now, How did they come up w/that number ?? 44 is obvious.

Well since it is a Forty Four Magnum bullet, I would have to say ….Forty Four Five seems like it would be the correct way to say it.

I know when Pete and I were at the range with both of ours its was…” What the heck was that! ” is pretty much how others pronounced it.

 

P.S. Hi guys, been awhile.

Thirty five seven sounds like the price of ” a buck three eighty.”
