Does Dillon or RCBS make loading dies for that?

As a former Wildcatter, I wonder if I could neck that down to say.223???????????????

I like the 25 calibers better so maybe a 257 roberts x57mm howitzer

Skeeter Skelton had a fictional character named Jug Johnson. In one of the tales, Ol’ Jug tried to neck a 50 BMG to 44 caliber and build a revolver for it. 
 

It’s still one of the funniest stories ever written. I’ll try to find it online.

I remember reading about someone who built a 50 bmg pistol.  The photos showed some pretty impressive fireballs.

After shooting a Thompson Center pistol with a 10” barrel using hot 30-30 loads at a couple of Silhouette matches I have no interest in even seeing a 50 BMG handgun. :lol:

The BFR in 30-30, an almost practical revolver... almost,  is a 6 shot fireball machine.  :D

I miss Skeeter's tales.

I read Skeeter's writings a little every month just to keep his work fresh in my mind.  Because pure enjoyment.
