6000 joules is a rating often used for various Pulsar products.

.308 150 gr. @ 2800 fps is around 3500 joules
.45-70 325 gr. Leverevolution is about 3500 joules
.50 Beowulf info here... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.50_Beowulf

Thanks Double Naught Spy, I really want to put my XD50A on my HOG HAMMA but scared to death the recoil will kill it.

1J per Kg of body weight will defibrilate a child.

That's what I know about joules.

One joule in everyday life represents approximately:

the energy required to lift a small apple (with a mass of approximately 100 g) vertically through one metre of air.
the energy released when that same apple falls one metre to the ground.
the energy required to accelerate a 1 kg mass at 1 m∑s−2 through a 1 m distance in space.
the heat required to raise the temperature of 1 g of water by 0.24 K.[6]
the typical energy released as heat by a person at rest every 1/60 second (approximately 17 ms).[7]
the kinetic energy of a 50 kg human moving very slowly (0.2 m/s or 0.72 km/h).
the kinetic energy of a 56 g tennis ball moving at 6 m/s (22 km/h).[8]
the kinetic energy of an object with mass 1 kg moving at √2 ≈ 1.4 m/s.
The amount of electricity required to light a 1 watt LED for 1 s.
