Worst Kicking Firearm?????

I ws just thinking about some of the different fun spoiling guns i have shot in my life. The 270 feather light weatherby i started out on, 3.5" mag shotgun shells, stiff loaded muzzle loaders, etc etc.

So my question is, what is the meanest, tooth jarringiest, concussion givingest gun you have ever shot??????

Personally for me it is a tie between my Super Black Eagle shotgun loaded with a 3.5" 2.25oz turkey load with my back up against some scrub oaks, or maybe BJ's smokeless muzzleloader, that damn thing kicks

just wondering

steve

Re: Worst Kicking Firearm?????

worst would probably be eithe the 416weatherby or we have a single shot 12guage that was super light and would accept 3.5in trukey loads. both of wich I can to move me around. Oh, guess I have to add some slugs out of the 12guage. the ones I have are potent enough to actually open the slide on my 835 with out me pulling it back. almost worried that it is a hazard but it kills elk and deer whenever I want it to so i just hope for the best.

I'll have to go a long with POP on the 378 wby. i have one of roys 378 before he made his own action and the frist time i shot it off the bench i made the mistake of not having enough cheek pressure on the stock. And boy was that a big mistake [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Darn i thought MIKE TYSON done sucker punch me .

Re: Worst Kicking Firearm?????

I shot a custom built 460 Wby once , the gun weighed just over 9lbs shooting a 500gr bullet at 2700fps, no scope luckly. I thought that it had honestly hurt me , my shoulderblade and spine between my shoulders was sore for a week and I had a stiff neck for a few days
