I didn't say the recoil of the .416 wby mag was comparable to a 12 gage--what I said was the Mark V safari/dangerous game hunter equipped with an accubrake and a good buttpad (like the pachmyer decelerator pad) makes the hit "spread out"--not like a massive kick. If you can handle a stout 12 gage magnum--like a slug (I should have mentioned that) then yes I believe you can handle the big Weatherby magnums. The 460 is bigger and heavier kicking, but not by all that much, over the .416.
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!
