Interesting. The recoil calculator says my Barrett Semi has 103 ft-lbs of energy.
While that might be true, and I question it, I have no problem firing 100 plus rounds in a day, and often 30 rounds in about a minute.

What's the difference, cause I don't have Superman's shoulder?

The Barrett spreads out the recoil over ~~ 200 milliseconds, where your lever action Alaskan is going to dump all of that energy in a single (painful) impulse about 5 milliseconds long as it has no energy absorption mechanism (much less strategy) other than the weight of the rifle.
