The heat that blows back at you, the massive plume of fire and a concussion that hits you is incredible. I actually felt a tingle go up my thigh.
You need to get yourself a Mosin-Nagant carbine.

Btw - a side note about the .30-06 in a Contender pistol. An Encore pistol, yes. The Contender was never chambered for the .30-06 as the pressures are too high.

460 S&W

I really enjoy shooting my 460. Super accurate revolver with groups under 2" at 100 yards that will shoot with any wheel gun. The one recoil issue for me is when I am shooting from the bench, I place a folded towel under my right elbow. The revolver snaps back when fired and slaps your right arm on the bench. It does not take many rounds before you are black/blue. The towel helps a bunch. When shooting conventional standing, the recoil is no problem.

You shouldn't be resting your elbow on the bench in the first place. Rest your forearms on the bench or on bags but never your elbows. Or the pistol's butt.

A friend bought a Model 629 in a 4" at the same time I got my GP100 in a 6 inch.

My GP100 was easy to shoot with full house loads but when I tried his .44 Mag did it ever wake me up. It stung my hand pretty good and wasn't comfortable shooting at all. Maybe better shooting grips would make a difference but so far I have not been able to overcome that experience enough to buy my own .44 and if I do it will not be a 4" or under piece.
