Re: Worst Kicking Firearm?????

It looks like the winner is the 378 Weatherby . I'm sure there are worse but most people haven't
shot them like the weatherbys,

The 340 and the 378 are notorious because of the weight and the #3 contour barrel on
most of them.

The 460 has more recoil energy but less recoil velocity as is the case with many of the big
bores.

Brakes have minimized this if most of the lightweight rifles but are less efective on a bog
bore with a lightweight barrel.

Some rifles without brakes just kick and others don't.

The worst I have ever shot was/is a Thompson Center contender pistol chambered in 444 Marlin
using 265 grain bullets @ 2300 ft/sec.The pistol weight is under 4 pounds with scope.

A Fun post!

Hands down, my worst is my Model 70 African in 458Win Mag. The rifle weighs about 8 1/2 pounds and will loosen your teeth.
