I have really come to appreciate good recoil lately.
Every cartridge/rifle has a slightly different feel and some are just down right satisfying!

I was favoring 12 Ga. for a while but am falling in love with 7mm Rem. Mag.
I will do a little 7.62x54R for variety.

So, do you have a favorite recoil, like a fine wine?

buy a .50 BMG, cut off the muzzlebreak, and fire it from the shoulder. then you can tell me about recoil

i still have 'loaders thumb' and 'shooters shoulder' from last saturdays session.

for kicks, try this:

synthetic stocked H&R Topper 12ga. shooting Remington 3" mag slugger slugs.
My H&R weighs in at a little over 6lbs - do the math

6lb shotgun+ 3"magnum slug= OUCH!

I have the same shotgun and have never shot anything but one ounce loads. I do not know how to do the math but went by life experiience.

I would recommend cutting off any breaks at the muzzle.

It could split and ruin the entire barrel.



I hate it when the muzzle breaks.

I have an old single barrel shotgun, with "palmetto Model 1" stamped on the side.
22" single barrel, hardly a fore-end to speak of, and a poorly shaped butt-stock.
With anything more than low-brass dove loads, its no fun.

I prefer a good single-malt 7.62x54r on occasion. Goes down smooth and leaves a good impression

HA HA HA YEAH ME Too........
(by the way that has only been a problem with saboted ammo(SLAP). When the sabots exit the barrel they catch the muzzle brake.)

My little freedom arms 97 in .45colt loaded with 300gr LBTs over 21gr. 'lilgun gives a nice push.

300gr+1400fps+36 oz handgun= ouch. Accurate as could be wished for though, at least the first one! Can't shoot too many of those without developing a flinch.

I had some 45-70 loads for my marlin guide gun that kicked pretty hard too.

I like 7.62 NATO, that's a nice satisfying recoil you can enjoy over and over all day long.

I fired a few rounds through a 7mm STW a few years back, and still remeber how nice the recoil was for such a flat shooting cartridge.

As far as magnum level recoil is concerned, I have a rule. If I can stick my little finger in the end of the barrel, I don't shoot the rifle.

I Loved it,,,,Do it again? Fuck Yes and again and again and have so since

My 700PSS in .308 has the most recoil of any gun I own and it's not bad at all. It used to be the 8mm Mauser for a long gun and an airlight .38 for a handgun, but I sold both of those. I'm not recoil sensitive, but it is detrimental to the type of shooting I practice. Recoil is the enemy of putting rapid accurate hits on target.

Even my 12gauge has little more recoil than an AR-15.

.35 whelen is nice for a day..
.416 Rem will open your eyes..
.460 Wby mag I have been told is a brute.. Its not finish yet, but the test fire was really impressive.!!
Link Posted: 4/8/2006 8:47:13 AM EDT
My first experience with significant recoil was when I was around 9 or 10. My uncle handed me his bolt action .375 H&H thinking that I would puss out and not shoot it twice. In fact I shot it about 10 times that day and I still love that rifle.

I carry a Smith and Wesson 340 PD in .357magnum. Every once in a while I really enjoy just one or two rounds out of it. I don't drink and never have but suspect that it is like a shot of something snappy but painful if abused.

Take a .416 Rigby....instead of your shoulder, place the but firmly on your nose...

Fire this fine recoiling rifle...

Come back and tell us how much you appreciate it

.338-378 Weatherby Magnum. No brake.

I shot it once.

When you have a bone driven quite firmly into your frontal lobe and lose 3 pts of blood, it's hard to type.

I've got a .458 Lott and a .416 Rigby waiting at home for me but the heaviest I've fired is a 9.3x74 Tikka 512 (slightly less energy than a .375). It had a crappy pad, and didn't fit well. It was aggressive, to say the least, since it wasn't that heavy either. The forend also came off occasionally during recoil. That got sold off after not too long.

I'm a sucker for the 300 Winnie with no brake. The recoil lets me know it's doing the job.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:46:04 AM EDT
Turkey load, all the recoil I'll ever need.

I sold my Blaser in 460W mag because the recoil
was just too much . Off bags on a bench , it was
close to un-shootable .

Right now the hardest thumping weapon I own is a
tossup between the .50 Beowulf and a M1S90 firing
3" mag slugs . Both are tolerable but still cause those
pinpoint bruises in your skin if you fire too many rounds .

Maybe I'm just getting old , but I enjoy shooting way more
If it's not hammering the shit out of me
