Default 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.

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.

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

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