Who would give this a try ...not me.

Now there's real "knock-down" power, Rick! No, If I was aware of the load, I'd definitely take a pass if it was offered to me to try. I cower in abject terror at the range if a handgun that starts with something bigger than .40 is offered.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Ouf! That looks like a bad ass recoil alright!

That doesn't look fun to shoot.

I'd shoot that. You can tell by looking at the way most of them are standing they have no idea what kind of power they are dealing with in that rifle. Half of them are practically leaning back!

Oh, that. I thought you were going to show me a picture of something disgusting and you were describing what my reaction should be.

I wonder at what point does somebody suggest ... "You know, maybe this thing ought to be mounted on a carriage."

I agree with Brandon, from the looks of this video none of these fellas have ever shot a rifle before in their life.

Dirty trick to play on someone that's never fired a rifle. And ALL these folks look like this was their first shot with anything other than a .22LR, if they've fired that.

Personally, I think that anything bigger than a .338 Lapua needs a muzzle brake.

I routinely fire .50 BMG and that appears to have far less recoil than what these folks are getting from the .577 Nitro.

I should youtube my 15 year old firing a .308 followed by the .50 BMG - quite entertaining.
