That's probably why someone wants to sell one to the OP, who had the good sense to ask about it first.

You should be able to tell by now that this is not a general purpose cartridge. It's sole use is to hunt BIG game, and by BIG I mean grizzly bears and African dangerous game. There's no reason to put up with the vicious recoil for anything smaller.
