    I have a 458 Win Mag which is about all I can handle. Never shot a 460 Weatherby but I don't think I want to. I shot a 600 Nitro express once and I'll never do _that_ again.

    Try a Polish P64 with stock springs and you'll know what pain is.

    My most painful experience was with a Thompson Center Contender. It had a 10" barrel, 4x Burris scope, and was chambered for the .30-30 cal. Call me a wuss, but first shot I fired decided this was not going to be fun. Tried handloading the round down a bit, but didn't help much. Sold it a week later. Swore I would never again shoot a handgun chambered for a rifle caliber.

    By far it would be the S&W 500 revolver a good friend of mine has. He recently bought the biggest grain they make for it(I forget the number, but the bullet is almost an inch long) .50 cal. pistols kick like a mule.

    Yeah, those are the ones, pretty nuts. We dug one out of the hill we shoot at, and there is just as much lead inside the casing as there is outside. There is only about
    1-32" clearance from the bullet to the edge of the cylinder. That's a lot of lead

    First off, I love shooting 1911s. Just had to say it.

    With that said, my least favorite gun to shoot is my .38 special snubbie. It's one of the new hybrid polymer frames, and I'll admit that it's very light in my pocket. But it draws blood within ten shots. I gave it to a friend at the range to shoot. He fired two shots and handed it back to me. I would rather shoot just about anything other than that snubbie. For that matter, I would rather flog myself. I plan on selling it and buying a Rhino.

    Yeah, I have an LCR in .38 special and it's real unpleasant to shoot. Doesn't draw blood but 50 rounds is about all I can stand at a time.
