I don't think I could do 5 consecutive of .458.

We had an M82 for a while but decided it was overkill and went back to the M40 .308.
I had bought the Remington .458 Win. Mag. in Los Angeles prior to my move to Alaska in anticipation of hunting brown bear. However, after a living for a few years in Alaska I decided that I had no interest in eating bear, and it was costing me ~$5/shot, so I sold the rifle.

Yeah, I got a buddy with a desert eagle .50. He lets it sit on a shelf for the same reason.

T-rex is .577 and it knocks folks three feet backwards.
You can tell some of them never fired a shot in their life. While maybe 1-2 had but weren't warned of a good recoil.


Can't even guess what shooting .95 is gonna be like.

I've fired .50 BMGs not M2s but Barret's off hand (standing up) but the .95 SSK? **** that. Prone maybe.

I guess anything he wanted to.
As long as he doesn't have to carry that monstrosity more than 50 feet to get to his blind.

Anything they wanted, past or present.

With a 2,400 to 2,600 grain bullet, it makes the 750 grain .50 cal. BMG look tiny by comparison. That is more than four tons of energy packed into less than one inch in diameter. Nothing that is currently living, or has ever lived, could withstand that kind of energy.

The Second Amendment acknowledges our right to "keep and bear arms," but in the case of this rifle you are stretching the limit of what an individual can "bear."
