Default The World’s Biggest Caliber (.905!) Rifle in Action

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/want...fle-in-action/

Shooting a .700 caliber comes packs a punch. Step it up to an almost unheard of .905 caliber, and you have a ballistic beast in your hands.

The Blaze brings you the SSK industries .950 JDJ. It’s the biggest centerfire rifle ever made.

With a 2400 grain bullet, propelled by 240 grains of powder, the JDJ is comparable to a World War I-era tank round or a 20mm cannon in terms of kinetic energy.

Estimates are that one of these rounds would easily pass through several human targets– even if each were equipped with full body armor.
It was almost classified as a “destructive device” but a special “sportsman exception” was made for the JDJ.

The guys from Knight Rifles headed out to the range to give this monster a try. Very few people have ever shot the .950 JDJ as a rifle, as only 3 have been made.

This model was the first and the lightest coming in at a robust 50 lbs. The custom bullets cost about $40 each.

So what’s it like to shoot a bullet that nearly an inch wide and four inches tall? Well, it has been described as having “significant recoil” and in the video below, one of the shooters say “it’s like firing ten .30-06′s at once.”

Another shooter, after getting a taste of that vicious recoil, turned to his buddies and yelled “you lied to me. it kicks like a mule.”

You can see the .950 JDJ in action below, courtesy of the guys over at Knight Rifles:

A 50 pound rifle? How is that anywhere near practical?

I think it's more like a concept car. Not really practical or for mass production just a show off piece by the manufacturer and something cool to play with.

Even if it were lighter I don't know who's paying $40 a round to have their shoulder dislocated.
