    Shooting the mighty 505 Gibbs

    Hi guys,
    During my trip to Europe, I had the opportunity to shoot two rounds of 505 Gibbs:
    Now that is a real man' calibre!!!

    I fired a 505 Gibbs in a carbine length some years ago in the USA. Gave a healthy push , certainly not a boot like a lightweight 270 or similar.

    I have had a shot with one, a CZ safari, in my cause, it has a real hard shove that's for sure, I think its a touch more power, that I am interested in, the Cz is pretty heavy, so no bruising after my few shots, (3 rounds I think,) I wouldn't mine one, but think, you have to work your way up, to the big boomers, however a 416, 458 or 404 are cheaper to run and easier to get brass, some day perhaps.

    The first shot did not feel to bad ( the second video), as I relaxed on the second shot my shooting hand slept of the stock handle. I was hesitant to shoot a third one, not only motivated by the recoil but by the price of the round : 20 each ( kynoch)
    It is Cz safari with a straight stock and two Mercury recoil dampeners inside.
    If the gun is not sold by the next time I am over there, I ll buy it and bring it back over here. I ll have to find some wild cattle to put down with it!
