The Warthog gun.

The warthog was designed around this gun. It shoots a 6,650 grain bullet at about 3,500 fps. It also will shoot them at over 4,000 per minute.

The biggest bullet in the picture is the one it shoots.

The other picture is the gun with "something" next to it to show its size.

Thought you long range shooters might be interested.

Hope you enjoy,

joseph

    Only drawback I see is won't be much meat left to eat on large game good on wolves and coyotes though.
