Re: What is your hardest kicking rifle?

As expected the 50 BMG was a handfull...even with the brake on it, the 375BMG was a lot easier on the shoulder
The Ruger 77 in 7mag was a shoulder bruiser before I put a real recoil pad on it but the little 18" barreled H&R 12 guage shootin 3" slugs is just plain rude!
The SRH is fun to shoot with 45LCs but is nasty on both ends with fulll house 454 Casull loads!

    Leaves me groggy and disoriented for about 15-20 minutes.

    I have shot a 300 waetherby no brake thats weighs under 7 pounds. I have a 30-378 shooting 180's without a brake. Have shot 240's in the 30-378 with the brake. The worst I have ever had against the shoulder even compared to a couple of 416's, shotguns, and a 50 bmg.... Merkel single shot stalking rifle chambered in 300 Win mag. I do not know the weight but it would kick the hell out of you even with a recoil pad on your shoulder. We were only shooting 165's and 180's.
