The first photo is a comparison table of some of the big bore cartridges that I've fired from pistols. Please note, the first cartridge on the left is NOT the .375 JDJ. I'll have to research my records to identify this one. Thanks to a knowledgeable viewer who correctly pointed this out to me.

The first video clip is me shooting the "light loads"! You may want to increase or zoom the picture size to get the full impact of this experience.

The 2nd clip is an interested party willing to experience it! Carefully, observe what happens to this guy, and the final facial expression!...
