You saw the recoil with the 18 lbs muzzle brake. Now imagine it without ...

Shot a .458win falling block Ruger once thought I'd detached my retina... 50BMG rifles aren't so bad but they're all prone or bench guns feel like a 3in magnum shotgun.

That is a freaking anti-tank rifle without an armor piercing round. :Smile_amazed:

And here is a side arm you can use in case something is a bit too close for a rifle.

JDJ is famous for over the top cartridges especially in handguns. Guy dropped a Cape Buffalo with one shot with an 8mm JDJ contender a full 6ft of penetration 444 Marlin necked to 8mm

This thing would sure be a bit tough on the game we have around here. Growing up on the farm the largest cal shotgun I ever used for wabbits and pheasant was a 20 gauge. It don't tear up the meat like a 12 gauge.  BUT THIS THING!!!! O my.

Good to know. We've been having a huge problem with Brachiosaur overpopulation in our area. 

Ya we do also.  The largest number of auto insurance claims around here are due to cars hitting Brachiosaures. Damn things are in rut right now and you round a curve and there be a herd of them on the move.  You can't avoid them. Blamo

Laf, if you hit a rabbit with that thing there'd be no meat left.  Just a smear.

Never seen a brachiosaur on the road, but I did have a stare-down with a buffalo on the road one time.  This was before the State Farm commercial came out...

You should have just got out of your car and tried petting it like those idiot big city urban types do when they see a bear at a national park like Yellowstone. :Smile_facepalm:  Grizzlies love that especially when they have cubs. :Smile_teethhappy:

And the top two new theories on why these magnificent creatures went extinct:

1.  Cavemen over-hunting with the .950.

2.  It wasn't an asteroid hitting the Earth; it was a round from that rifle missing its intended target.

What scientists don't tell you, part 5, made up things;

Caveman actually had an advanced capitalist society, which of course, should be obvious since capitalism is just people selling what they wish, to those who wish to buy it. 

Cavemen had come up with a new weapon to deal with the abundance of dinosaurs eating them, which they considered a minor nuisance. the .950, However, it was discovered that the .950 was ineffective in getting through the thick skull of the Tyrannosaurus rex. However, it soon was rebranded and moved out of the self-defense market, instead it caught on in a more lucrative market, industrial-scale brachiosaurus hunting.

Soon brachiosauruses went extinct, and the starving Tyrannosaurus rex herds decided that cavemen looked tasty. Soon T-rex herds were roving through the streets of the cities, eating all in sight. Needless to say, there was a rather large demand for a weapon that could kill T-rex'. Of course, where there is a demand, capitalism would supply, and the cavemen came up with a new weapon, the 18.1-inch naval gun, some said it was overkill, others said it was impractical, and still others said that the 100-foot long tank it was mounted on was too expensive. Regardless, soon all dinosaurs died out. But mother nature hates a vacuum, and when she saw that there was a lack of ferocious things killing off humans, she got slightly annoyed and triggered the apocalypse. That is why human society had to be rebuilt, and only now are we back to our former capitalist glory, also, that's why there are no dinosaurs. 

Feel free to upvote at your leisure.

I've shot a Brachiosaurus with this. Can confirm, it drops them. It's a little hassle to field dress in the middle of town but you get used to it.

And "mini" hands would be a T-Rex.
