The bullet for that sumbitch is 3600gr.
The rifle weighs 85lbs!!!

Why?!?!?!?!?! Is my question.

Ok--have to pick a few nits here. It's not the largest bore centerfire rifle. That honor
would go to something with a bore measured in inches, and be "crew served".
It isn't even the largest bore shoulder fired centerfire rifle. There are plenty of
4 bore and even some 2 bore rifles out there, both vintage and modern, that have it
beat.

It IS one big rifle---I would jump at the chance to fire a couple
of rounds through it!

*shrug* maybe largest non crew served?

I dunno, just thought it was ridiculous and neat at the same time, and is the largest non artillery I've heard of.

I would call it a cost effective tree removal service

It's certainty one of the largest "Holy sh!t is he actually pointing that at us?" guns out there.

Yup--and it's BIG, but the bore is only about .780. There are still quite
a few Solothurn and Lahti 20mm semi-auto's out there. I've shot the
Solothurn. Long recoil action and a decent muzzle brake, not bad to shoot.
