What gun has the most recoil? I'm talking shoulder-bruising, out-of-the-socket kickback.

    Got to be Art Alpin's A-Square .577 Tyranosaur. Take a look at the link below for proof....

      I'd say somthing in the .500 nitro/above range, would do that trick. Say is that Mrs. Welch(5,000,000 B.C) as your post pic?

        Anyone ever hear of a punt gun. Not meant to be shouldered, but would meet the requirements of this question.

          2oz turkey loads in a light 12 gauge pump are worse than anything else I've ever shot, and that includes .458 Win Mag.

            The 4 gauge Shotgun come to mind.

            I’ve shot a many magnums including the 460 Weatherby off the bench, but the cartridge that punishes most is the 12 gauge 3 ½ inch!

                The 577 Tyranosaurus video is hilarious. I once asked Art how many of those he had sold. He just looked at me and smiled. I have used his 460 Short A Square, and still own it. It is a super accutate rifle for a big bore.

                  Happy,

                  I suspect the video clip does little to boost the sales appeal. I guess a fair assessment is that it is a chambering that hits hard on both ends!

                  Cheers!

                    Beekeeper,

                    My secretary was looking over my shoulder just as the guy in a white shirt was about to touch that monster off from the bench. I commented he was about to to murder his middle finger behind the trigger guard. As he was shaking his hand in agony after the shot, she asked how I knew that was going to happen. I replied, unfortunately, I have been there.

                        Gotta give the guy in the dress lots of credit for shooting it as many times as he did.

                          A 3.5inch turkey load out of a Remington 870 would be toward the top of my list.

                            A 3.5 inch turkey magnum out of a light pump is about as bad as a .458 Win, but not the most punishing. The .458 Lott is a big step up and is definitely nastier. Not sure how they compare to my old (stupid) habit of 3.5's out of a 5.5 pound single shot, lighter than any other shotgun capable of chambering and firing 3.5s. I wouldn't know, I've never fired a Lott. I'm a little chicken about them.

                            How are they, men of experience? Should I try one?

                              I'm not sure. I'll go back to the day when I was a skinny 10 year old shooting a model 37 single shot. Felt like getting hit by a train.
