Not Recommended for Grunts – The .959 Rifle

Sometimes you need something with some uumph. In the summer of 1914 an older British volunteer is said to have knocked a German aircraft down with a mounted 2-gauge fowling piece. Correia’s Owen Pitt used a custom Saiga to go after dangerous prey and Buettner’s Jazen Parker a HATT to do the same thing. Authors are going to need to consider this now.

It’s a .959 caliber rifle; 2,400 grain $40 bullet driven by 240 grains of powder.

Read about it over on BOLO Report.

    What strikes me is that some of these guys were pretty big guys and they still got kicked back like that. Impressive.

    Another example of “Just because you CAN, doesn’t mean you SHOULD.”

    Absolutely ridiculous but cool. Give a redneck enough idle time and some knowledge in machinery and this is the result.

    This gun was actually made to take down BIG FOOT!
    I also want to see what it can penetrate. Armor truck for starters would be cool to see it go through both sides.
