I had a 20" 458lott in a Kevlar stock that was around the 7lb range. The 500grainers would shake the snot out of you. It was dropped more than once by folks who werent quite ready, of course i always told them the truth on the recoil :)never wanted to scope it.

458 Lott. Then there was the 12 ga with a metal base plate but the 338 from the prone position rattled my cage. The snot shaker par exellance was the 460 Wby.

I now have reason to believe the most dangerous place on one of those cannot clearly be defined as the muzzle.

"Most felt recoil" does not necessarily mean biggest cartridge. Some stock deigns are rude and exagerate recoil sensations unreasonably.

The only way to improve a .30/06, is to clean it once in a while.

Along with stock design and weight of rifle, I'd have to say that weight or rather lack of it, really is the reason for painful kicks. I'v owned and shot a bunch of big bore double rifles and bolt actions and since the heavy ones created less felt recoil, I found them OK to shoot. I have a 10# 338 that I really like to shoot....but since I'm not able to do much anymore, it's going up for sale.

A guy I know had a #1 customized to a 416 Rigby and I vowed that never again would I shoot it. Light weight rifles are for light weight ammo.....and just the reverse is true IMO.

My 500 Jeffery weighs 11.25 lbs without scope (12 lbs with). It has two 12 oz mercury recoil reducers installed and the balance is perfect for me. If it was a pound and a half lighter it would be zero fun to shoot, for me at least.

I own a CZ .458 Lott and it is a [bleep] cat compared to my light Model 700 in .338 RUM. I touched of about 7 rounds of the bench in that biyatch and I was speaking in tongues for about 3 days afterward!!! Too much for me! I sold it and use my .338-06 for 98% of my 338 needs.

My 500 Jeffery was 9 lbs without scope, not quite 10 lbs with scope. I do not own that rifle anymore...
