When I shot the 416 it was a duplication of an Africa thing. You hang a kerosene lantern out at night yards away in the dark. Stand offhand and try and shoot the light out. Apparently this is a ritual in Africa after killing some animal.Besides being hard on the shooter its also bad on the lantern. And no I have never been to Africa. Also I love my 7mm-08

Bought a rem 700 BDL from Slades in 71 or 72. Still have it and the receipt. $119 including tax. Dang thing still shoots sub-moa after a couple of thousand rounds (at minimum) of hot handloads thru it.

460

I have one live round in my ammo collection I got from a friend of mine. He has a bunch of them but the rifle that went with them either burned up in a fire or was lost and then found later in such a state it couldn't be shot again. I will have to ask him what really happened. Maybe it kicked the snot out of him and he threw it off of a mountain. I have heard besides the fact they will bruise your body they may also detach retinas, something to think about.

Capstick wrote about a doctor friend of his who shot a Cape Buffalo like 10 times with the .460 Weatherby Mag...the buff wouldn't die and all shots hit where they should have. Wrote that the doctor was bleeding from the nose and stuff from the recoil and suffered badly.

Let's just hope I don't have another lapse of memory on the damned thing.

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.

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.
Yes, I remember that store well. Great story. Not just 1 shot, but 3! Now we know what broke the utility pole at U of H.

Wow! I figured the recoil would be bad, but didn't know it would be that bad. That table is interesting.

I have a 505 Gibbs bolt gun if anyone is interested in getting beat up more than the 460 Wby

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

Be truthful now )))
