I have seen some powerful handguns but this one may take the cake. The .600 Nitro Express revolver is made by Pfeifer Waffen an Austrian gun manufacturer that specializes in revolvers using the largest ammunition around.

According to Guns.com, the .600 NE was designed in 1903 by Holland & Holland. It loads a .62-inch, 900-grain bullet into a rimmed case and fires in excess of 2,000 FPS. It produces more than four tons of energy in foot-pounds. Guns chambered in .600 NE had so much recoil they were often not used for hunting, just big-game-related emergencies, like accidentally sneaking up on a bull elephant.

They were always rifles?..Until Now!


First Handgun Deer: ~1982 8" S&W .38Spl
SW 7.5" 686-7 with Matchdot II
SBHH .45LC 7.5"
Contender G2 .35-30/30 (Bellm), .22LR, .22 Hornet, 25-35
Glock 40 10mm; G21 Poly80 w/ 9 inch barrel (in work)

I have a video of a 14 year old girl shooting an Encore pistol in 470 Nitro with 500 gr Factory loads...she shoots it like a champ

Has Max seen this yet? He just may have to get one of those! I am all for "Power to the people" but good Lord! In the immortal words of Clint Eastwood: "A man has got to know his limitations"!

How do you know its full power? I believe it. My daughter shoots things regularly that are high recoil. She shoots big iron, on big iron, she works, she knows what doesnt, she is the real deal.

Ok...good for her...JD Jones posted this video on SSK's website a few years ago and in the caption he says that it was Federal Trophy Bonded Factory load...that's how I learned about this young lady.

Good on her, a good brake for sure. Maybe if that could be put on a revolver less would be scared of full power 44 loads
