.458 Winchester Magnum Is Quite an Earth Shaker

.458 winchester magnum

Who here likes big-bore rifles?

One of the bigger calibers out there is the earth-shaking .458 Winchester Magnum cartridge. When on safari and you need as much power as possible, the .458 Winchester Magnum is the perfect medicine.

YouTuber Iraqceteran8888 has a .458 Winchester Magnum bolt-action rifle ready to go, but he’s not after game in this video. He’s testing out the cartridge’s firepower on pumpkins, watermelons, 5-gallon buckets of water and frozen turkeys. Needless to say, this thing can do some damage.

We’d like to give a special thanks to IV8888 for firing off this cannon and sharing it with us. We’re certain your shoulder is black and blue after this big-bore plinking video!
