    Entertaining, but looks like an overpriced plinker.

    I wonder how much one round costs? Too much... I would be afraid to shoot it due to ammo cost.

    Pretty good description of the cartridge. I may have to make a couple for the cartridge collectors at the range. Definitely a novelty, but I'd like to see longer range velocity and accuracy statistics. I'd like to shoot my dinosaurs a little further away.

    It's really cool to watch something being fired like this, because as far as rifles fired from the shoulder are concerned, I have no intentions of going above a 7mm Rem Mag. or the 7.62x54R Mosin variety. I bruise easily. :oops:

    Add a few pounds of lead butt pad, and it would help tame that recoil.

    X2, a lot of bigger hammers are 16-20# which tames the recoil.

    Which is the reason for hunting dangerous game, the double barrel rifles were and are so popular.

    Have one as well. Bulgie ammo isn't quite that spectacular, but close enough. Gotta be wary shooting prone in dry grass ---
