    Problem with the big fitty is finding a range that will allow it. 99% of them wont because of its extreme range.

    Got a buddy that uses his 458 Lott for a ground hog gun. That thing sounds like a Howitzer recoils like a Howitzer and hits like a Howitzer inside 200 yards. He shot 1 the day we went out didn't even had to throw that one in a hole. After it blew his guts out (REALLY) it dug a crater that looked like a meteor the size of a smart car hit right there. All we did was push some of the dirt back in the hole with our feet.

    Almost as cool was when he took his 270 weatherby out for ground hogs.
