.470. Wimp caliber. .600 Nitro Express -- now THERE'S a man's round! If a .30-06's recoil is rated as 1.0, this sucker's at 9.4! Broken collarbones and broken shoulders have resulted from the use the .600 Nitro Express, which was developed solely to stop a charging elephant or rhino dead in its tracks!
(Kinda reminds me of the hunting scene in Terry Southern's The Magic Christian. Only the .600 Nitro Express is real and has been used for hunting elephant and rhino.)
