This score was achieved on a bootleg cartridge, the shield is stronger in this version so I abstained from using it - this is how you learn shmuppin' ;) Everything else is the same as in the original ROM - you can compare this to my emulated runs.

I initially removed this score, because I was doubtful about the whopping amount of points I've earned for killing the penultimate boss (the Walker), but I saw a video where a dude got even more points for this one on the original ROM. I think that the amount of score you get, depends on how fast you kill the Walker (and this guy annihilated it almost instantly), and in my score for emulated Gradius (ca. 400k), I've messed around pretty long time with that boss:
