- Faster than a speeding bullet: the muzzle velocity of a Colt M1911, the modern Colt .45, is 830 fps. MMD will reach 1200 fps.
- More powerful than a locomotive: almost. At 1200 fps, it will have a kinetic energy of 72000 foot-pounds (K=mv2; 1200fps and 1/20 lb), which is equal to a Class 08 shunter (the most common locomotive in the UK and maybe the world) traveling at... half a mile per hour.
