    A 12G from hell!

    Just had to pass this on - I mean this awesome - and probably painful too. I calculated ME and both these loads mentioned exceed, wait for it ................... 11,000 ft lbs!

    OK forget 600 Nitro Express - here guys is a BIG slug launcher!!! I snagged this from THR - look at this - I still wonder if it can be for real!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Visiting here to let folks know about our latest
    big wildcat cartridge.First it was developed by Rob,John
    and I over on AR big bore forum.It is a long brass case
    made from bmg brass that we put a 12ga size rim on.Rob and
    John used a Borchardt falling block action and I used a
    Savage 210 bolt action shotgun that I put heavy barrel and
    and stock on..In testing I got a 730 gr Dixie hard lead slug
    out at 2700 fps.Got a 3/4 oz barnes sabot out at 3900.
    Here is picture of our case next to a plastic 12ga shell,
    which can also be fired in our chambers.Ed.

    Rob built his on a HUGE falling block,
    Dave - I was thinking more of a crew served artillery piece!

    Seriously tho - that bruiser would sure want a heavy platform - I mean the muzzle velocity for such a heavy pill is just awesome!!

    Call me if they decide to put this in a T-C Contender

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    What I'd like to know is what type of CUP or PSI pressure that round is putting out.

    Looks like it would be fun the first time. A lot of fun. However, I don't think I could build a habit of shooting those. I kinda have a dislike for dysfunctional shoulders. ;)

    HOLY SCHNIKIES!!!!

    I'd imagine the recoil would be similar to being shot.

    The test gun weighs 25# so - could well be this is like launching a 50 BMG.

    Here is something further to wet appetites - Ed's latest post on the other thread - heck - 2,000 grain slug! Oh my! Hoping a vid will be forthcoming when weather better.
    capacity is 355gr water.
    spiggy..we plan on getting pics and video
    when good weather gets here.

    Antibubba- this even, as big as it is, isn't
    ultimate stopper for game, bunch of us are going to
    make 2 and 4 bores.I also have 700HE with more
    power to test in a couple months, and down
    the road the 900HE.Here is pic for
    your pleasure, of 4 our bore cases,
    with 2000gr bullets, next to 20mm brass we make
    them from, and 06 case for comparison.Ed.
