    Who Says Revolvers Recoil ? {non 56k friendly}

    So i keep reading recoil is much worse with a wheelie than a 1911 and having a few wheelies i had to try it out and see espically some of the ones people say are the worst..

    here we start off with a 440 grain 500 S&W







    Now we step up to some 700 Grain 500 S&W loads surprisingly i had some issues with bullet jump first time with this bullet both times it was 5th Cartridge i wish i could hav got a pic but didnt have close up len's

    So more crimp next time around

    Recoil is little heavier but still fairly tame







    So where is this recoil beast i havent found it yet so i switch up to the 44 mag 3 inch snubbie if its to be found its got to be here.

    44 mag 250 full power



    That was disappointing to say the least

    So lets try out the 460V one handed

    460 270 Grain bullet





    Look ma no hands just what is holding that gun there



    I must say that is one of neatest pics we have taken over the years

    Well lets step up to some 370 grain 460 barn burners


    nope no recoil here either





    So all in all the experment was a Failure a lot of ammo was shot though but recoil was not to be found


    So next time you hear soemone say a revolver recoils to much point them this way and ask them

    What you Talking bout Willis

    Recoil?

    What recoil?

    I don't see no recoil!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Hahaha - lovely examination of our old friend recoil!

    Must say tho my 45-70 BFR does like to climb pretty well but then shooting it my way I actually let that happen so let energy go free instead of up my arm.

    Question Why

    Bud, looks like shooter is letting the support hand loose, and in one pic, the shooting hand is very loose.

    Poor grip???? :)))

    The pictures alone make my 75 year old body HURT!
    Keep the shotgun handy!!

    So how were you able to see what you were shooting at with a smile that big on you face blocking your vision?

    Have you measured your arm lengths after this session. I would think that they might have shortened up a little with the recoil (or lack of???).

    you're left handed - me too.
    looks like your shots/recoil are torquing to the right?

    If you want more recoil, you could always get one of these to shoot:



    and if thats not enough for you, you can always remove the muzzle brake
