Holy Smokes - .95 caliber rifle.

I was researching the .45-.70 Government ballistics when I came across this monster.


The .950 JDJ cartridge drives its aforementioned 3,600 gr bullet at approximately 2,200 ft/s.

This yields a muzzle energy of 38,685 ft·lbf.<sup id="cite_ref-Airborne_0-1" class="reference"></sup>

For comparison, the 5.56x45 cartridge, used in the M16 rifle, produces approximately 1,200–1,300 ft·lbf.

The .308 Winchester, a favorite for hunters and medium-range police/military sniping, produces between 2,000–3,000 ft·lbf depending on the load used.

In a 110 lb rifle, this will develop well over 200 ft·lbf of free recoil energy if an efficient muzzle brake is not used.

This is far beyond the shoulder-firing capacity of nearly all humans, even without considering the difficulty of shouldering such a heavy rifle.








Overall, depending on options, the rifles weigh between 80 and 110 pounds and are therefore only useful for shooting from a bench rest or heavy bipod.

The rifles cost $8,000, loaded cartridges are $40 each.

I do believe that one crosses the threshold from rifle to cannon.

Isn't that number 20mm?

I'd say 20mm is usually the accepted demarcation from rifle to cannon...but somehow this rifle was granted a NFA 'sporting purpose' exemption.
