No... It's more like a .730 Nitro Super-Express that never was.

Look at the velocities. It's no shotgun.
This resembles a platform that could be attached to a vehicle or fixed turret guarding an industrial or mining site in the middle of the African savanna against charging wild animal attacks. No matter if it is a charging elephant or leopard or hippo. One hit from a load like this, it is going to be one shot, one drop, one instant kill. Period. End of story. 12,000 foot/pounds with a flat nosed big game bullet? HUBEL's latest update just said that he managed to get a couple of 415-grainers clocking at 3800 feet/sec...Close to .204 Ruger velocities. This can probably take out a Soviet BT-7 light tank from the 1920's. One hit to the engine compartment and game over.
Climb onto the saddle and ride with me through the last remaining Wild West frontier in the world.
