Well I've seen Chainguns fire, they are loud, and a million rounds is a bit overkill.

From the article here:

Just how lethal? That depends on how many rounds you want to fire and how many barrels you want to put to use. In a test firing of 36 barrels, lashed together and firing full bore, the gun reduced a series of 15 wooden doors to toothpicks in just two-tenths of a second.
A video can be seen here.

Yeah, but I honestly don't see the point of firing that many bullets in one spot. A single large shell could do much the same thing.

A single large shell would have a more likely chance to miss, then multiple smaller rounds.

Yes, I forgot one of the uses stated in one of the articles. That was for this gun to be used against missiles as a sort of point defense. It certainly would be hard to miss with that rate of fire.
