When the dust cleared, there was a hole about 4" wide through a double row of railroad ties, sand and the back cinderblock wall of the store. To this day, I will never know where those three 500gr bullets went into the 5th Ward....... nothing on the news.

I actually don't remember the recoil but it kicked up so much dust that you couldn't see for 10 minutes. The muzzle blast was amazing and of course nobody knew why there was so much dust in the store the next day.
That's bad azs

Weaselmender I had a friend sneak up on others with his until he snuck up on Pasa 110 lbs and no fear, the rifle threw him half the length of a pickup. He announced NO gun could that twice, that one could ! That was we made its owner shoot it, it has not left safe in 40 years.

You never witnessed the dust flying off a pig/nilgai until seeing it from a body mass hit with that .500. Literally seen pick up a pig and big bull up and knock over like a bowling pin. Running 570 gr. Barnes at nearly 2500fps/8400 ftlbs. Safe queen now--kinda hard to use up in the mountains-lol.

I suppose if you ever had to stomp a Griz., it would be the ticket.

texastkikker dang.....biggest one in my safe is the .340 WBY. She packs a wallop but not too bad. I'm 5'11" and 195 dripping wet. I can shoot a box through it at the range over a couple hours time and that's about it. I start to get a headache because of the recoil/concussion. My uncle had a .50 BMG that was awesome. Recoiled less than the Sako .270 WIN FinLite. I like the new 6.5 Creedmoor more better now.

My 7MM 08 is just fine...... in 2007 I went to Zimbabwe with my father on an elephant hunt and he was shooting a 458 WM I shot an Impala with it for camp meat...... well lets just say that so much for camp meat... That was enough Whop for me!

To be truthful, I don't know if has ever been shot and will never let anyone shoot it. I have removed the firing pin and trigger.
Oh a weekend project.

Let's take it to my place in Edna, set it up wedged into a tire that it will fit into, tie a hundred yards of string to it and fire the dang thing.

We can set up cameras at the scene of the demolition, I mean where the pistol is set up.

Would be a fun way to spend the day. We have a big oak tree to hide behind so we'll be fine.

Hey Martin, I just looked it up and it looks like you win! That seems to be the hardest recoiling bolt rifle made. Probably not the best contest to take top prize in.
Cool!

What did I win besides a bruised shoulder, busted lip and a loose crown?

2Cool member "Bird" almost bought it ....... but it really scared you -didn't it Bird?

Be truthful now )))
Ok, I'll fess up. The 505 Gibbs had me flinching not because of the 6,100 ft/lbs of muzzle energy but the $19 per shot. Ok, maybe a little Since I'm fessing up, I am still considering that monster Sylvan...

FYI- the 460 Wby mag has about 8,000 ft/lbs of muzzle energy with a 500gr pill
