Etymology[edit]

From Latin magnum(great)

Noun[edit]

magnum ‎(plural magnums or magna)

  1. (wine) A bottle size of 1.5 liters.
  2. (wine) A bottle of wine containing 1.5 liters of fluid, double the volume of a standard bottle.
  3. A gun cartridge of a large calibre, often derived from a smaller similar cartridge.
  4. A handgun that fires a cartridge of this calibre.
    • 1971, Harry Julian Fink, Rita M. Fink, and Dean Riesner, quoted by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry:
      “I know what you're thinking: ’Did he fire six shots or only five?’ Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But, being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: ’Do I feel lucky?’ Well, DO ya, punk?”
