Worst Recoil Ever?

If this isn’t the worst, it’s got to be in the top 5.

That's pretty bad!

I had the opportunity to shoot two rounds out of a 50 AE this past weekend. First handgun that ever hurt my wrist. Didn't bother the web of my hand at all. Just a pinch of pain in my right wrist.

The fellow said, "I got a couple more rounds, if you want." I was like...............Thanks, but NO!

I have shot a lot of belted magnums, but for me, the most painful gun I ever shot was a single barreled NEF 12 gauge with 3 shells. I bought it for my son, got rid of it quick.

My Grandfather had a very old single-shot break-action 10 gauge. Only shells he had for it the one and only time I shot it (at about 12 years old) were pumpkin balls.
Yup. That stung.

Just in case you ever regret getting rid of it, I have a 12 Ga full rifled Pardner 2 that will bloody your nose if you aren't careful! I scoped it once, and recieved "magnum eyebrow" for my efforts.

On the lighter side, if you leave the 3" Rem Copper Solids in the box, and use either Lightfield Hybreds, or my Lyman 525Gr handloaded slugs, it balentines the rounds at 50 yds. Killed one deer with it and wondered who got the worst of it.

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!

My Mossberg 500 12 Gage slug gun beats me up a bit.

Is a 4 gauge a 1/4 pound of shot?

I have shot everything. Well just about. and for me the worst I have shot was a 30-378 weatherby without a brake. It's not always the "big bore" but the combo of over bore and powder amount that make some guns HORRIBLE to shoot.
