    How good would an m16 be vs a T-Rex?

    Or even an elephant?

    I just watched the end of Jurassic Park when the Marines show up to save the day, so this came to mind.

    Pretty good, I'd say. Just don't be the one the T-Rex takes down with him :p

    How do you measure the effectiveness of a gun? I have no experience with them. I assume the more momentum the gun gives the bullet, the better, but if the bullet goes right through the target a lot of the momentum is wasted. There must be some sort of trade off between momentum and penetration (more momentum gives you better penetration, but too much and you get diminishing returns with through-and-through hits).

    What parameters are the most important when shootin' your old lady down 'cause you caught her messin' around with another man, Joe?

    If Rex is something like 50 feet long and weighs as much as ten elephants, I don't think an M1 would do the job. I think you would need a 50 caliber machine gun or bigger, maybe a nice gatling gun with a few thousand rounds of ammo. One problem being, so you have just gone back in the time machine and there it is roaring out right in front of you and you, o mighty hunter, AFTER you poop in your pants, take aim, but what do you aim at? Where is the heart? Bullets would probably just bounce off its head and just REALLY piss him off.

    Why don't you just shoot it in the eye?

    EDIT: Or the nards...

    I think an M1 would do just fine. The M16 might have trouble though.

    I have a follow-up question: why don't you move to a safer neighbourhood?

    'Cause I'm a paleontologist inspecting this newfangled Jurassic Park and the dinosaurs got loose and I'm trying to get out but the dinos keep trying to eat me

    Oh, THAT M1.

    Well the stronger round might be good for a T-Rex.

    I think you guys are dreaming if you think you would down a rex with any regular rifle, even an elephant gun. Those things are HUGE for gods sake.

    The situation I was thinking of was a squad spraying burst fire into it, actually.

    Well that might confuse it a bit anyway Still, under those circumstances, you blow enough holes in it, even the mighty Rex would have to fall. Eventually Said squad would be well advised to stay of of range of its tail!
