You may have shot some guns with some serious kick in your lifetime, but have you ever shot anything like a .95 caliber “squirrel gun”? This gun is said to be the largest center-fire rifle ever made. It is called a .950 JDJ by SSK Industries in Ohio. There were only three of these monsters ever made.
This one happens to be the lightest one, the carbine version, weighing in at 50 pounds. It shoots a .95 caliber, 2,400 grain bullet and shoots 2,100 feet per second using 240 grains of powder, which generates 25,400 ft-lbs of muzzle energy and 277 ft-lbs of recoil energy! Each round costs a whopping $40! Something tells me this isn’t the kind of thing you want to use as your everyday hunting rifle. I can’t imagine packing this thing around the mountains.
If you think you would enjoy being kicked by a mule, then you might want to see if you can find one of these to shoot–but, good luck with that, as there have supposedly only been 12 people in the world who have gotten the opportunity to shoot this type of gun so far.
