With the KDF brake it was almost tolerable (15 rds/ session). I removed the brake to see if point of impact changed. On the second shot the bolt handle bruised the outside of my hand. The brake went back on and stayed on until I sold the rifle.

Yep! That was a very nice trip! the only thing better would have been getting my permits a tad earlier so I could have taken my 450 NE.. But it would have been lost along with my baggage so maybe it's better that it didn't go?

Why is it that a couple hundred fps more goes from Ok recoil to ouch? My 500 Jeffery shooting 570g TSX's at 2300 fps is fun to shoot offhand at least for the first 10 shots. Shooting the same bullet at 2400 fps is less fun and at 2500 fps it's no fun at all! Recoil at 2300 fps is 83.62 ft/lbs with recoil velocity at 21.88. At 2500 fps recoil is 102.22 ft/lbs with recoil velocity of 24.19. Maybe I've just reached my tolerance (or I'm just a wuss)?

Chuck

I know it's not in the same class as a 500, but a 18" 45-75 P+ 300gr rung my bell unexpectedly. crazy

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.


If Obama is the answer, must have been a pretty stupid question.

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.

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 pussy 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...

My 505 Gibbs weighs 10 lbs even, I dont run a scope on it, the 600 gr Woodleighs at 2450 fps really boot, I have backed this round of reloads back down to a more civil 2250 fps. wink

The difference between the recoil of a 458 Win Mag and a 500 Jeffery or even more so a 505 Gibbs of roughly the same weight and stock design really has to be experienced. I'm not a big guy, 5'9" 185 lbs, but I can shoot boxes of ammo through a 9 lb 458 Win Mag. One box (20 rounds) offhand through my 500 Jeffery and I'm still smiling but I'm done for the day.
