    pretty neat but practcially useless -rifles weigh 80-100 lbs, muzzle energy 36000 lb ft, recoil like a pissed off Jackass, classified as a destructive device by ATF must be registered, custom shells about $40 a piece. think my 50 BMG is plenty for my needs. would look cool at the range if they would even let you shoot it

    well yeah but that wasnt the point.
    i mean come on, that .50 looks like 30-06 round compared to the .950!!

    and actually, i think, in most states you have to register a .50 BMG anyway. simply because it isnt a normal hunting caliber.

    well yeah that is the point, it's too big to be practical, no human could shoulder fire a 110 lb gun that has a free recoil energy over 200lb ft. you may do it once.

    And no you don't have to do anything extra from an ATF standpoint for 50 BMG rifles that you would with any other title I rifle. I own one. Do you live in California by chance?

    ATF defines anything over 50 cal as a destructive device and requires registration and a $200 tax stamp, except shotguns and antique calibers like 600 and 700 Nitro express and stuff built before 1898. muzzle loaders don't count either.

    The only error I made is that SSK Ind. did obtain an exemption ,a rare one, for this cannon. alledged price is $8000 for gun , $40 per round. Are you going to get one?
    as far as the comparison goes , its all relative, 40mm makes the 950 look like a 22 short whats the point?

    well yeah that is the point, it's too big to be practical

    950 JDJ ~ when overkill just doesnt quite come close enough

    The .700 Nitro express is NOT an antique Caliber.. it was developed in 1989
