Unless you are shooting a S&W 500 Magnum. Look at youtube as to what those bad boys can do.
So ... .500 S&W Magnum seems to be the "most powerful" commercially available handgun round in the US today. 350gr at 1975 ft/s ==> 3031 ft-lbf muzzle energy. That number compares favorably with a .30-'06. It's also about 5x greater than a maximum load .45 Auto (ACP). I expect it would have shattered the bowling ball.
However ... .30-06 is sort of middlin' as modern rifle cartridges go. Compare to .300 Lapua Magnum 201 gr @ 3200 ft/s ==> 4585 ft-lbf. Or .460 WbyMag (7504 ft-lbf).
Or let's be ridiculous ... .50BMG: 800gr @ 2895ft/s ==>14,895 ft-lbf.
So ... there's overlap. And it's certainly impressive that a revolver cartridge can compare favorably to a rifle standard like .30-'06. But I think it's still interesting and instructive that ballistics which seem "extreme" in a handgun seem "average" in a rifle.
Nooooo, no T-Rex thumper for me. When I was young I liked magnum handguns and standard cartridge rifles. As I continued getting older and older, I flipped, liking gentle handguns and magnum rifles. The S&W 500s would cripple my arthritic hands.
