    Put aside your girly-man .458 Win Mag or your wimpy .50 cal and
    watch guys shoot a real gun, the largest center fire rifle ever made,
    the .950 JDJ by SSK Industries ( Ohio ).
    Only three were ever made. This was the lightest, the carbine version,
    weighing in at 50 lbs. It shoots a .95 caliber 2,400 grain bullet at
    2,100 fps, using 240 grains of powder, which generates 25,400 f/lbs
    of muzzle energy and 277 f/lbs of recoil energy. Each round costs $40.

    She kicks like a mule. :D

    I've seen that before. Forty $ a round? That'd buy 1100 rounds of .22 lr. I'll pass and be girly. :)-B >=

    The reason I stop at .44 Mag, and 30.06,

    is there's a point at which shooting is

    no longer fun...

    I agree, but its fun watching those yahoos detach their retinas and tear their shoulder muscles.

    I'll take the 20mm rifle, 100 gram bullet fired at a muzzle velocity of 1,035 m/s (3395 ft/s).a muzzle energy of 53,567 joules (or approximately 39,507 ft-lbf). & cheaper to shoot;)
