    For reference a .950 is basically a 5 gauge (.955") in shotgun terms. And a pure lead round ball that size weighs right in at 3 ounces. And a standard load of black powder would be somewhere well north of 200 grains. Can't imagine what a modern bullet would weigh, or what powder charge would push it. Both ways.

    That's funny and I'm sure you're right.

    This cartridge should be chambered in a NEW DESIGN Ruger, Hawk of some kind, Revolver that has a Lanyard.

    Ya, and get rid of the compensator. It'll blow too much dirt in the air when shooting prone, and blow your ear drums out as well.

    Naw that won't work. Rugers are cast frames remember?! It needs to be a chambering for the new Smith and Wesson XXX-Frame.

    Holy bajeeebus!!

    Man I thought the RC-50 was bad. That thing is crazy.
    Reminds me of the 500 T rex videos from the Accurate reloading board. None of those boys look like they enjoyed that one bit.

    A guy over on the AR Forum fired that rifle in 1997. It's been around for a long time.

    Yeah JDJ thinks he doing something. Only reason the rounds cost that much is someone is foolish enough to buy them from him. You can make your own reamer and build your own rifle, or mortar for that matter.

    577 T-rex, Saeed also has a 700NE single shot.

    At one point in time I thought I'd build a 600 overkill. Then I got my 500 Jeffrey, and my starting load was a 600 gr cast bullet over 100gr of Varget, which chronoed 2200 fps.

    Thus ended my interest in building something bigger.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    You have to wonder what they are thinking putting a light trigger on it. Also I can't imagine that 0.950" barrels are common so if you are getting custom barrels why not go 1.000". But hay if you ever need to shoot through 6 brown bears lined up end to end, that should be enough gun.

    Yea and not just guns . . . from 1850 to 1950 give or take we went from wagons to cars, muzzle stuffers to full auto, wishfully looking at birds to jetting all over the globe, pencil-n-paper to computers, etc. etc. Lately there has been nothing much new, we have refined the old ideas greatly but where is the real innovation? We seem stagnate, innovation and creativity stifled to just making the old ideas work better . . . oh and gawd when was the last time you saw a movie that wasnít just a remake of a remake with better computer effects in it!
