    Anybody check out that 338-378 on consignment down at the Gunbroker on 82nd Dr? Holy cow that thing is HEAVY!!! Even though I'd hardly ever shoot it, I just can't stop thinking about it . . . :paranoid:

    "The free recoil of the 338-378 Weatherby Magnum from a (11 lb) rifle (including magazine rounds, scope, base and rings) is 73 J (54 ft · lbf) as compared to an average 27 J (20 ft · lbf) from a rifle chambered for .30-06 Springfield."

    Ouch!

    I know two people (a father and son) who use theirs for hunting. Without a muzzle break they say it's really rough to shoot. And yes the cost of the ammo right now is pretty outrageous.
