It's right up there with their other big 5 cartridges like the .416 (which I have fired but not their .460). These days it's probably not available from Weatherby without the accubrake fitted by default (or at least a threaded muzzle), which goes a long way to "spreading" the felt recoil out and it will likely have a fine buttpad as well. Equipped thusly, you'll be surprised that the recoil is not nearly as bad as you might think or have read. First time I shot the .416 I was tensed up for shoulder Armageddon, after firing it my reaction was, "huh, is that all it is?" Honestly, no macho macho bravado--if you can handle a 2 3/4" or 3" 12 gauge magnum shotshell you'll have no problem with this IMO.
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
