I see that one round of .600 NE costs only $36 these days. I thought it would be more. I think it was in the recent past.
I've never fired a .600 NE, but I did shoot a .577 NE. I was shooting offhand, so the recoil didn't seem too bad...for one round anyway. That same day I also shot a black powder 8 bore rifle: That was memorable. The whole world disappeared in a cloud of white smoke, and I was pushed back a couple of steps. Both rifles belonged to the late Jack Lott.
I once put 62 rounds through a .460 Weatherby Magnum in one afternoon (although only about half were factory or full-power handloads). The experience wasn't as rough as I thought it would be. I wonder how the guy who found a .223 "punishing" would feel about that.
However, all this was over 30 years ago, when I was a good deal younger and tougher!Edited by JLibourel - 6/16/16 at 2:37pm
