It's all about who has the biggest weapon..sorry I ment shoulder mounted firearm
Real men shoot the Simonov PTRS 14.5 x 114 mm (.586"/4.5"). It takes 656 gr of powder to throw a 1,026 gr bullet at 3,300 fps, and delivers 24,520 ft/lbs to the quarry.
However, its hunting use is limited to perfect broadside shots at soft skinned PG because it only perforates 40 millimeters (1.5") of rolled homogeneous armor steel (RHA) at 100 meters.
Would suggest considering an Improved version with decreased body taper and increased shoulder angle to get something a little more serious for DG...
Meh...steel cases...can't handload, probably won't regulate in a double rifle and the pressure will probably cause poor extraction...besides the .375 Ruger is out performing it from short barrels.
Nice..how many gun bearers would I need to engage to sleph that on a 10 day safari .remember I only need 1 shot.
only if you can put the bullet in the right place!
With a .275 Rigby Bell only needed one shot.
Since no pictures of the cartridge or weapon have been produced...
Weren’t you the one who had to add he has a 577? Just saying
Out of the 3 I said I think the Wells was first.
I have a 500 A-square and to me it is the most common sense 510 cartridge available. It is built on a 460 Weatherby case which is easily fire formed to the 500. Mine is built on a 602 action and I shoot 570 grn Barnes X at around 2400. It is not unpleasant to shoot, cycles perfectly. I have taken 2 buffs in Uganda and a giraffe in Namibia with it.
I sure like the idea of the 495 A square. But head stamped brass is such a problem I would just go with 500 jeff
I was able to buy 20 head stamped 510 wells from Wells sporting store in Prescott . I beleive minimum order of head stamped brass is 2000. I dont need that many, though it adds value to the rifle if it is ever sold. True, vergin 460 brass is easy to buy ,works fine.
I will post photos of the 500 pirro, and the 510 wells, just so you can see what I am talking about.
No .465 H and H?
That’s a great looking cartridge.
Still waiting on these pics
I thought only the Nepalese Army used the belt fed .500 Pirro? Huh?
