I know a guy who at one time worked with railguns in the Carolinas. He would track them down in the wild, tranquilize them, tag them, and release them so that scientists in his lab could get a better picture of their day to day behavior and migration patterns.

He said that he couldn’t say much about the stuff he worked on, but mentioned that railguns need lots of room to run. And I can see why.

BAE Systems, apparently a one-stop military technology shop, just tested a 33 megajoule railgun. They helpfully explain a megajoule as roughly the equivalent of a one-ton vehicle moving at 100mph.

Just watch the video:
