    Nice, I want one. Now makes the 458's and 50's look like kids guns, right!

    Nice toy but what can it do that a BMG cannot?

    buhjeezuz. 6 rounds out of a pound of lead. enough powder for a box of 5.56.

    That's not really a good prep choice unless you need to stop an elephant in it tracks. YMMV

    And there aren't any wild elephants in Michigan last time I checked.

    It takes more force than normal to work the bolt.

    It is my understanding that ANY Weapon that has a Rifled Bore over .5" or 50 Caliber, or Smooth Bore over 10 Gauge, is classed as a NFA Weapon. Last time I checked, most alaskans can't afford the Tax Stamp to secure such weapons. I know I can't, these days. There was a Wildcat, that an Alaskan Gunsmith, from SquareBanks, worked up for Polar Bears, called the .35 Whomper. I knew the Son, Dennis, who shot National Match, and was a Salmon Cannery Foreman. ..... YMMV....

    The inventor believes the rifle is not classified by the BATFE as a destructive because it is a sporting weapon. There is sporting weapons, such as shotguns and big bore double rifles, are exempt, the usual procedure it to obtain a letter from the BATFE stating that the particular weapon is a sporting weapon.[drooling]

    Then you only have to worry that they don't change their mind and pull a Ruby Ridge or Waco on you for an unconstitutional $200 tax.

    Bruce, do you have any links to the .35 Whomper? (I love that name!) I tried a google search but couldn't find anything. What is the base cartridge- a 50 BMG?

    No I do not... It was a wildcat, and as I recall, it was based on a .458 WinMag fire-formed case. I can't even remember Dennis's Last name, as it has been a decade since I spoke with him. His Dad was the GunSmith, and built the custom Barrels. I did get to try and shoot it once..... Way to big of gun than I could comfortable handle. We both worked for the same outfit for decades, before they liquidated their Alaska interests, in 2003.
