Shooting The 905…The Worlds Largest Caliber Rifle
With all of the large caliber rifles that have been make to sell in the civilian market…I think that this one takes the cake. Ohio-based SSK Industries has produced the largest center-fire rifle in history. It is a .905 caliber which produces recoil equivalent to shooting ten .30-06 rifles at the same time. Each bullet costs $40 and comes in at a weight of 2400 grains. For comparison, the bullet fired out of an AR-15 costs .50 to .70 cents and weighs approximately 55 grains. The rifle itself is currently being produced at a weight of about 50 pounds, but the earlier prototypes weighed in at over 100 pounds (kinda heavy to carry while hunting whitetail deer eh?).
