    Shooting that is bound to be a "hold my beer, watch this" moment.
    If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!

    From the link in the article:

    The caliber equivalent of 2 bore (‘bore’ is generally interchangeable with ‘gauge’ in regard to caliber) is 1.326″ or 33.68mm! The bronze solid bullet weights 3500 grain / 1/2 pound / 226.80 grams!

    While technically fired from a rifle these are more like massive shotgun slugs: a heavy projectile at a low velocity. The 2500 grain bronze solid leaves the barrel at 1500 ft/s and with 17487 ft·lb of energy.
    Holy Cow. That's all I got to say... 17,487 ft lb? That's 8.7435 tons! We're going to start talking ballistics in tons! Ca-razy.

    That's like getting hit by a backhoe

    Here's the 2 bore next to a .700 Nitro Express:

    Didn't know one could hunt with artillery.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
