Now if they could only make a hollow point for it that would pentrate 10-12 inches and still dump 38,685 foot pounds of energy into the target you might just have the MAGIC BULLET.

Hard to really determine the rounds size without something next to it for comparison (like a .458 Win Mag), but at 86 lbs, I'd say most of the recoil would be soaked up. I'd give it a shot (once). I shot both barrels of a .458 double "once." I can tell you it did NOT weigh 86 lbs, nor did I at the time.

I live in Tucson, it's about 50 to 55 miles to the border as the crow flies. Can I hit targets at the border from my back yard?
