    Other than 50BMG and 408CheyTec, without looking at a balastics table, I'd say 338 Rem Ultra Mag would be a good candidate.

    No such thing as "knockdown power". What are you trying to accomplish?

    A .308Win will do that. One of the 300 Magnum offerings would do it better. Or 7mm Rem Mag.

    The real question is can you.

    At 1.2 mile that is THE question all right.

    The question in the OP was about a 1/2 (half) mile, which is 880 yards.

    And even then there's maybe 5 or less people on this site who can shoot that distance accurately enough to hunt ethically.

    But what if you just want to knock them down? Maybe just humiliate them a little...

    There's no such thing as "knock down" power. In order for a projectile to knock down your target, the propellant has to knock you down. Basic laws of physics.
