Recoil is affected by many different factors so I don't know what you are exactly looking for here. I can tell you from personal experience having owned a .50 Desert Eagle that the recoil on that monster is atrocious. Unless you have forearms of steel don't even try to shoot it with one hand. I tried. Thought I had broken my damn wrist.kestak said:Greetings,
Yesterday my wife went to try her new Taurus 6.5 inch 357 magnum revolver (and of course, she let me shoot a couple of cylinders out of it by pure kindness...hehehehehe).
We shot 158 gr .357 Magnum and 158 gr .38 special. The recoil is quite different between those 2: the .38 special is very mild compared to the .357 magnum.
To make a long story short, I was able to convince her to buy that gun and not a .454 Casull. So, my question is:
The .357 Magnum is the biggest I shot. On a scale between 1 and 10, considering the .38 special is 1 and the .357 Magnum is 2 on the recoil chart, what would be those rounds on the scale?
- .454 Casull
- .41 Magnum
- .45 magnum
- .44 Magnum
