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.

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.
