I just tuned my friend's .416 wby mag for an African rhino hunt--it weighs about 8.5 lbs maybe another lb or so with scope. 6 shots in a row and came out of it no bruises, no afterpains, no problems, really. Holding it firmly pulling it in a bit and taking the hit with a bit of muzzle lift (without moving the torso back) and that's what I call "spreading" the felt recoil out. The accubrake and pad on the Mark 5's really do work. Did this off the bench, BTW since I was also zeroing a scope.
