    Big gun poll

    Hypothetically, would you get a big bore if you didn't have to/could justify it (pigs, really aggressive targets)?

    By big I mean over .375 and over 4000 ft-lbs. Basically elephant gun stuff, not really hot 45-70 loads in a No1.
    I'm sure you understand the spirit of the poll. I'm curious if people would go bigger if our licensing system were less scared of big calibers.

    Yeah I badly want one. I've got me 45-120 (poor man's nitro express) but I'd love a bolt action in .404 Jeffery to with a single shot in something bigger than 500 nitro.

    No need for me, especially in the UK. I prefer my retinas attached.
