I read about that gun. To me it would seem the old British idea of a rested gun fired standing would make sense. That said I really want to fire a rifle that makes a 458 lott look like a plinker.

That is one rifle that will not be introduced to my shoulder. The recoil energy is equivalent to the old 38 Spl +P FBI load at the muzzle.

+1 My bones are too brittle for that beast. Sometimes the concept of "because you can" should be tempered with "why?". I guess I'm getting old. Cracked bones and ribs are no fun.

I would say because you have something only 2 other people have and i think it would be fun to see the look on your buddies faces when you pull that beast out. Definitely not practical, but sure looks fun.
