I don't know if I would say that it the biggest.

There are 2-bore rifles out there that have a larger bore, http://stolzergunsmithing.webs.com/2borejonesfinished.htm

and there are 20mm rifles, tht even though they are smaller than .950" have a larger cartridge for more muzzle energy.

Do recoilless rifles count as rifles? :D

Technically it is called a rifle...realistically? Don't know but it's a hell of a lot lighter and I'd love to have a gustav tucked away for a rainy day.

You didn't specify shoulder fired.

thats not a rifle. the definition of a rifle includes "fired from the shoulder", and more importantly does not include machine guns. So, the GAU-8 is not a rifle.

I largest rifle I ever fired (once!) was a Heym bolt-action in .600 Nitro Express---brutal! I still have one loaded cartridge somewhere in my collection.

I wouldn't fire this thing. The breach to barrel is crooked.
