This is a big damn rifle. Thanks to The Blaze.
The Blaze brings you the SSK industries .950 JDJ. It’s the biggest centerfire rifle ever made.
With a 2400 grain bullet, propelled by 240 grains of powder, the JDJ is comparable to a World War I-era tank round or a 20mm cannon in terms of kinetic energy.
Estimates are that one of these rounds would easily pass through several human targets– even if each were equipped with full body armor.
It was almost classified as a “destructive device” but a special “sportsman exception” was made for the JDJ.
The guys from Knight Rifles headed out to the range to give this monster a try. Very few people have ever shot the .950 JDJ as a rifle, as only 3 have been made.
This model was the first and the lightest coming in at a robust 50 lbs. The custom bullets cost about $40 each.
