To achieve a decent chance against a bear I will be trying out a 400 grain or so black powder charge. I will be testing the quality of the firearm by shooting it outdoors for quality insurgence reasons.

That is a great idea!
How will you aim such a large gun? Will it be mounted? What will the turn radius be? How fast will you be able to maneuver it?

This just became entertaining.
No offense and none taken

I foresee trouble in paradise.

Best of luck with the quality insurgence test.

I know it will be safe as it will have thicker walls than most barrels combined. I just want to know if it will slow down a bear long enough for me to make a quick escape.

I would but I don't see/use firearms as something for entertainment but rather about practical uses.

I am arguing with myself whether or not to make rifling for it since it is a trade off for power. I will be aiming it just like you would aim you're .22 rim or any other Walmart purchased firearm.

I'll be damned if I would live somewhere where believed I needed a cannon to defend myself from dangerous animals. Did you move to Jurassic Park?

Man is the most dangerous animal you are likely to have a encounter with and a .44 mag. will do just fine with him. (or nearly any other animal)

Are you ineligible to own a modern weapon?

I am not making a cannon, I am making a firearm. I don't believe in materialism and would rather something make from love.
