Form helps a little with the T-Rex but unless a buffalo or bear is chargeing me I aint shooting one again!!
Its meaner than a 50BMG without a brake and a NEF 3 12 ga turkey gun with the weight taken out of the stock:eek: I still owe Dad one for that stunt...Yes I am a full member of the hold my beer and watch this club:o

It is not cool to blow your eyes out from to much recoil.

I am now 62 years old and recently have had to quit shooting my .338 WM. I do not have a detached retina, but I now have a detached vitrious. It is the lining over the retina. My right eye now has a slight permanent cloudy thing floating around in it. Doc said- no more.

Bouncing down to 7MM Mag stuff and not the RUM or STW variety.

Funny as Hell!!

I almost detached both retina laughting the first time I saw that!! Has to be one of the most hillarious things I've ever seen. But only to watch, that bad boy would knock my skinny ass into last week.

Did you notice one shot was with a Ruger #1, all the others with what looked like the same gun. The second guy that shot it actually did a nice job of controlling the gun. But I'd dare anyone to shot it twice without flinching. It would be even funnier if about every third round was a dummy. I'd probably fall over from the flinch!

Actually I'd never shoot it without a muzzle brake. I've already had a detached retina...scary deal.

That's some serious recoil... A little experience would not hurt those shooters before step up to the T-Rex
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

What scope

Hey guys this looks like a perfict place to test all scopes
and mounting systems dont you think.

But I would recomend a helmet and face shield.

It would be interesting to see which scopes would hold up
If any and what bases you could use.

Just a thought

I am having a 500NE built on a ruger #1 action at the moment . te recoil is almost the same as my body weight.

Might fit that dead donkey to it after all.
