    When that was first posted on Tube, it was about the funniest thing I've ever seen. Still is!

    .577 T-rex. The gentleman who "owns" the Accurate Reloading forum (http://forums.accuratereloading.com/eve?s=518103) owns the rifle and the private indoor shooting range to go along with it.

    This guy is shooting a .577 T Rex double rifle. He indicates it is a 2,000 grain bullet. That's a pretty good hunk of lead.

    The 577 Tyrannosaur was developed by Art Alphin of A square back about 1994. The rifle in the video was one of his Hannibal rifles made on the 1917 action. The case is 2.990" long and .688" in diameter at the base. It is not based on any other existant case. It shoots bullets of .585" diameter weighing 750 grains (the same as the 577 Nitro Express) to over 2400 fps. It delivers over 9500 ft lbs of energy from a dainty 14 pound rifle. It is used to hunt squirrels in Alabama. That site is in United Arab Emirates, thus the unique shooting attire.

    Your video here is of a four bore meaning four balls to the pound, not a 577 T-Rex. Each ball weighs four ounces each or 1750 grains. He said a jacketed soft point so it would be more so the 2000 grains is about right. Is that enough bullet for a kodiak brown bear?
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    If are interested in the very largest of rifles and calibers then here is a good article:

    Those are from another forum owned by an obviously wealthy person that wears a sheet on his head.
