And For Those Who've Been Waiting With Bated Breath...

Yes, there finally IS a new load for the .577 Tyrannosaur.

750 grain squarehead bullet @ 2473 fps. Energy is a little over 10,000 ft lbs., and from all accounts this load will vaporize a woodchuck* at 100 yards. Or that pissed off elephant at 30 feet.

*Don't laugh. Woodchucks are notoriously hard to stop relative to their size, and all shooters with far too much time on their hands know that a 9mm will make one jump then run away to die while a .45 will make one jump then crawl away to die. Such are the legends that the plainsmen spin.
