The largest gun...ever.
 
This is for anybody who thinks that their handgun caliber of choice is the ultimate man stopper. Guess what...it's not. (also its for anybody who enjoys a MASSIVE gun) go to Wikipedia and look up the Shwerer Gustav. You will be amazed.

Not as massive as Gustav or Dora, but actually had a larger bore diameter-

For a bore brush, I think they used a Christmas tree. Instead of a patch, they tied a sheep to a stick.

Nothing says business like a 16,000 pound armor piercing round with an effective range of 29 miles. :cool:

Beats the hell out of that tank on the background, or any tank for that matter.

That thing might be bigger than Zanzamar, the "Dragon" guarding the Kyber Pass... I want one, just to lessen the mariachi music at 3am in my neighborhood...

Maybe. 800 mm is a good round, but I think you could do better. :D :p

Dog- good caliber, but RCBS takes FOREVER to ship the sizing dies out, and I got a hernia lifting one of the primers.....:eek:

BTW, this was the M65- a lot smaller (only 240 mm) and a max range of 20 miles, but it certainly packed a punch-
