    Ellephant gun! Hell, that's a CANNON. Make a cannister round with like 50 .44 round balls and let's see what it does at about 50 yds then:p

    The only thing I would warn you about is that is called "Shooting from a Roadway" in Indiana...$50 fine AND you forfeit the firearm to the DNR....

    Actually it is a parking lot at a drag strip that I work at. Place is infested with Whistle Pigs. Usually get around 60 of 70 a week with my 10-22. Some areas I can shoot the Remington 722 in .244 (6mm), mini-14 223, or Ruger #1 in 22-250
