It`s being called the `Dinosaur Gun`, I`m guessing because they believe it would take down a dinosaur, like an `elephant gun` was designed to take down elephants.

Malakamike, at the beginning of the vid there`s a screen which clearly says, "700 WTF, 1132 gr bullet @ 1600-1800 fps." That`s about half the speed of a typical .50 cal BMG load. The bullet was also clearly described as .70 caliber. This nomenclature is common with other calibers, e.g., the 270 Remington (.27 cal) or the 300 Winchester Mag (.30 cal). No one would believe that this bullet was 7" in diameter.

@Oldollie how do you know the bullets were pretty slow, can you see things moving faster then sound? And this is not a 700 caliber, .50 is half an inch diameter, if it was a 700 it would have been 7 inches in diameter, an equivalent to a artillery shell

Of course the ATF will be interested in this video. Next up either government contract or government housing.......

The bullets were big, but pretty slow. A .50 cal BMG has about double the muzzle velocity and double the energy, albeit with a smaller slug. (E = mv^2)

I see Albert Einstein in the bullet after it is put on the table for display, after it was shot through the stump.

I take it that "700 caliber" means the diameter of the bullet is .70 inches, no? If so, don`t you write it that way, as you would .22 or .45?

@MrPeabody i remember seeing a history channel special on the Barret M107, the bigass sniper rifle. it uses a 50 caliber bullet with almost no recoil, the gun was build with springs in the barrel to absorb shock, and the muzzle has those vents aiming the exhaust towards the shooter, this pushes the gun forward. it`s build to reduce recoil phenomenally. Same design looks incorporated here.

Kick back would be due to the charge in the bullet, not the bullet itself. A lot of the old musket rifles were in the .70 - .85 caliber range.

Can anyone explain why such a massive bullet doesn`t have a massive kick back? Based on videos of smaller rifles, you would expect that thing to rip their shoulders off.

.70 caliber, that`s like 17mm or so? Freaking cannon!
