I have shot every WBY in the book. The king of PERCEIVED recoil.

Re: Worst Kicking Firearm?????

The velocity of the recoil gets me more than the ft-lbs. That and gun fit, if it doesn't fit right it's gonna hurt. I've shot a 470 Nitro and loved it (until the concussion headache, damn short barrels). I've shot enough 3.5" goose loads in a day to actually leave a bruise on my shoulder, no problem. My dad's 375 H&H model 700 (didn't fit right either) kicked my butt. I still want an Ultra Mag but I'm trying to find one with a stock that fits great.

Re: Worst Kicking Firearm?????

Both barrels on a short little 10ga coach gun. It was an accident. I thought maybe I could get off a quicker followup shot if I put a finger on each trigger. Yea, it was very fast. I didn't hear the second shot. Just one big blast.

I have shot a few very lively lightweight Weatherby's and for me the stock redirects the recoil away from me and into muzzle rize. The heavier one are pure pleasure. To me the worst recoiling stock design on the planet is the Ruger canoe paddle in any magnum over 7Mag.

Bad triggers always seem to magnify recoil due to the anticipation. That is also another reason me and Weatherby's get along so well is they usually have excellent triggers. If not they will be after about 10-15 minutes of tuning.

The hardest kicking most painful weapon I shoot is that darn 500S&W. You start launching 350 grain or bigger bullets above 1700 fps and that smarts clear back to my elbow.

Dont EVER unscrew the brake on a 50BMG...Their on there for a reason!!
A NEF 3" is nasty with the lead weight taken out of the stock,shame on you Dad.
A 20mm Lahti round is kinda like getting kicked by a mule...A big dumb slow one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
A T-Rex is just plain MEAN,those guns realy aughta weigh more!!!
The 454Casual with 300 grain fullhouse loads is fer pansies
Oh ya we is a big dumb bastard [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: Worst Kicking Firearm?????

I will agree on the 378 WBY. I have one and I also have a 460 WBY and the 378 definately hurts more as it is much more sharp.

Now, I thought that was as bad as it could ever be until I built a 577 T-Rex on a #1. That thing will kick your *****!!

That has to be the most violent hardest kicking thing I have ever touched. I shoot 416 remington in a #1 all the time and it is pleasant to shoot but, that 577 is a nightmare!
