I've seen some individual clips of that but never the whole thing. that was awesome.

what caliber is that? is it really that big, or are they milking it a little bit?
never the less, WOW!

Thats a .577 caliber (.577 Tyrannosaur), it is real and has nearly 12000lbs of energy at the muzzle. Thats nearly 5 times the energy as a .308 !

Re: To Muzzlebrake or NOT...........

how does that compare to a 700nitro express, and the rigby's and stuff like that? I've seen guys shoot those and it's not nearly as bad as that video.

There are more videos on youtube.com about that gun, one is a professinal hunter looking guy that shoots it in a double rifle. he handles it alot better.
