Always Liked my .405 Winchester, big medicine for any ailment you may have!
Fixed it for ya....High-end, ultra expensive, custom affairs can still be had, but they are naturally pricey.
Regarding the mass producers of bolt-actions, two come to mind:
Of course it didn't thump you - very few men are as built as solidly as you are. @MountainBear is an aptly descriptive user name....I had a .458 for a few weeks. It didn’t recoil enough. Too used to shooting steel buttplate military rifles I suppose. Possible I like to feel recoil. Reminds you you’re alive...
I expect I will build a 9.3x62 at some point on a Mauser action.
I may build something obscenely if at some point like a .505 Gibbs, but that’s way in the future...
@MountainBear on the left, In case anyone was wondering!Had a CZ 550 Safari in 416 Rigby. That was a beautiful, sexy beast!
The rifle was sighted for 200yd and a 350gr Solid at 2300 fps.
Five shots, and I would have a bloody bruise on my shoulder. I started to develop a flinch, so sold it.
I'm never going to Africa to hunt, so don't regret it. I enjoyed it's aesthetics when I had it.
