You may have a bad ground in that case, the ground is at the top of the gas tank or the float inside the gas tank could have sunk or got stuck. Check your wires going to and from it not have a power or ground could do it as well.

What was the largest caliber shotgun made?

The largest EVER made was a 2 gauge. It holds a 2 pound metal ball, if I remember correctly. According the gauge index, a 2 gauge shotgun would hold two half pound balls since the diameter of the shotgun tube determines the gauge, the number of balls to equal a pound going down the barrel in this case would only be two to make a pound. Whereas in a 12 gauge, it takes twelve lead balls of the barrel size to make a pound. A two pound meal ball going down the tube would make for a .5 gauge.
