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.
