Barrett Light Fifty. Not only did it kick like a Missouri mule the R.O.'s hated the thing. I had to go prone at ASC in Houston to keep shooting it. The dust was terrible from the muzzle brake gas. I tried to block the dust with a pricey HS Precision shooting mat. Big mistake. The mat looked like spaghetti after one shot. I was a gun flipper during that time & that monstrosity went back out the shop door at a tidy profit.

By far and away .300 weatherby, it has an unbelievable sharp kick, would rather shoot the .378 or .416. .300 wsm is like a 243 compared to the weatheby

When I was 17 a friend's father had a .416 Rigby, bolt action, no recoil pad. I shot it once and that was enough.

Rifles Inc sheep Hunter extra lightweight rifle (around 4 lbs), no brake, in 300 Weatherby Mag. I agreed to shoot it in for a friend and after about 8 rounds was punch drunk.

An old JC Higgins (Remington) 30.06. It would actually bruise my shoulder after shooting at the gun range. Kept it 2 years then traded it off.

A .375 h&h rifle that had a metal butt plate. It didn't kick like a mule it kicked like a grown *** horse.

I haven't shot many rifles yet, but the worst was either a S&W M&P15 AR, or a 30-06.
The worst kicking gun....?
My late 1910's Winchester 12 gauge model 12 with a round of buck shot. Walnut stock, no recoil absorber, that ole girl will kick your shoulder off! No bs, you run 3 or 4 rounds through it one after another you'll want to put it down.
My newer Winchester 1300 is a pellet gun compared to that model 12! I can shoot rounds of high brass BB steel shot through that 1300 all day no problem.. The model 12 will finish me after a few rounds

Over the years I have fired numerous heavy recoiling rifles and enjoyed doing it. Even a couple 50 cal BMG with a brake. But the day a customer walked in with that Wesely Richards double in 600 nitro, I'll never forget. He asked me to test fire both barrels & like a dumb d** I agreed. Im glad he only wanted two shots, because I nearly backed out on shooting the second one.

My Savage 110 300 Win Mag beats the snot out of me when shot from the bench with my 180gr hand loads. It is hell on mule deer too though.
