Buddy of mine's dad ran a gunsmiths shop for years. Recently he was going through some old boxes while packing up some bluing equipment, and found a couple old boxes of .505 Gibbs. I don't have any pictures yet, I'll head over there this weekend and try to get some. Is this a common caliber? I've seen big rounds but these things are ridiculous.

I have a decent collection, including most of the big honking African rounds, but for some reason I'm really drawn to the .505 Gibbs, it's very popular in Australia, those knuckleheads seem to like anything that equals physical abuse. (That's not slander.......THEY told me that!)
