Sometimes you just have to wonder ..... why? I ran into some guys locally who were out with a 375H&H pistol and wanted me to shoot it. Well I was born but it wasn't yesterday, I politely passed on that, watched one of them shoot it and it was obvious that was a good decision on my part.

Ive seen that video before. Seems like a much bigger load.....or a weak grip. LOL.
Dont think I'd want to shoot it.

His grip and stance is the problem not the gun, if your going to shoot something big learn how

Just a novelty stunt for video fame- think about it... a 600 NE in a T/C Contender?? A greatly reduced load might be doable- but this appears to be a full power load. This video is a few years old. IIRC I watched a different shooter try the same thing, same gun and with the same result. You'd have to question their IQ... especially if they had any firearms knowledge and after watching someone else try it. Lucky someone didn't get the thing imbedded into their forehead.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
