    A Real Man

    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.

    IIRC, they shoot blackpowder so they could get around the destructive device law.

    Musta been something different I was thinking off. Apparently according to Wikipedia, JDJ got a "sporting use" exemption from the NFA law.
