.700 Nitro Express - 1,000 grain bullet moving at 2,000 ft/sec = 8,900 ft/lbs of energy at the muzzle.

It can be handloaded at 1,000 grain bullet moving at 2,600 ft/sec = 15,000 ft/lbs of energy at the muzzle

Hmmmm...... I like my shoulder right where it is at thank you very much.

That is a .577 T Rex... and the range is in Dubai, UAE. If you happen to be passing through Dubai and want to dislocate your shoulder. The is an African big game gun for dropping Elephants and other really large nasty critters.

A "youth" sized gun might fit your EX-wife well...

Funny ad I saw on GunBroker this morning

Browning 10ga BPS both Youth and Standard Stocks

THIS IS A BROWNING BPS 10GA PUMP ACTION REPEATER. THE 26" BARREL HAS A BRIGHT,

SHINY, EXCELLENT BORE AND 3 REMOVABLE CHOKES, IMP, MOD FULL.

THE MATT BLUE FINISH IS ABOUT 97%. THE SYNTHETIC STOCK AND FOREND IS WORN.

IT COMES WITH A WOOD STOCK TOO THAT IS ABOUT 98%.

THE WOOD STOCK HAS A 13-1/8" LENGTH OF PULL,

QUALIFYING AS A " YOUTH " SIZE, I GUESS IF YOU REALLY

HATED KIDS THIS GUN THAT SHOOTS 3-1/2" 10GA MAGNUM SHELLS

WOULD BE A GOOD GIFT.

I have a Ruger No. 1 in .458 Win. Mag -- which is very popular in Africa for Dangerous Game: Elephant, Lion, Cape Buffalo, Rhinoceros, Leopard (Big 5). The .458 WM shoots 500 gr. bullets (.458" dia.) at about 2,200 fps.

30-06 Spfd runs about 20 ft. lbs. recoil. The .458 WM runs about 96 ft. lbs. -- more or less. Somebody do the math on recoil for these larger guns!

I get asked, "Do you have a lot of elephants on the Oregon Coast?"

"Not since I got this here rifle!" :D

But it's small potatoes compared to the .477 T-Rex, .700 Nitro-Express and related. Considering the cost of these large caliber rifles, I can't imagine letting someone shoot it just so I can make a video of their being thrown against the back wall at the firing line. I get really upset watching my firearms being banged around, dropped, slammed.
