 No, nothing less than WMDs will suffice!

Did you know that there is a man-carried, shoulder-fired bolt action rifle chambered in 25mm AA?

Seriously.   Manufactured by Barrett.   But I think still only available to military.   

Sad, because it would make a great Blacktail brush gun.

No on the BMG.

Max caliber should be .338.  They have a min so might as well have a maximum too. No sense in killing something too dead.
