I've shot the M82 Barrett and an Iver Johnson 50, and I'd agree that the recoil is about equal to a full 12-gauge slug; as a bystander, though, you definitely get a strong "slap" from the muzzle blast. All of these rifles are heavy enough that you wouldn't be able to aim them offhand for more than 5 or 10 seconds, at least with any degree ofaccuracy.
