Hmm, this site says it's pushing a 545 grain lead ball at about 1000 fps. Muzzle energy is similar to a .223/5.56, but that doesn't always correlate exactly with recoil. These were single shot obviously, so there was no reciprocating action to absorb any of the recoil. They also had metal butt plates that probably didn't feel too good on the shoulder either.

Depends also of the weight of the used bullet, some of them are more lightweight to achieve less damage but more distance and vice versa.
I would rate the "blowback" at shooting a full choked shotgun with caliber 12/70.
The lethal distance was almost limited to 35 - 50 meters but the danger zone could be considered up to 100 meters with serious violences.

My buddy has a Knights .50 caliber muzzle loader that I have shot a few times. The recoil is similar to a 1 oz shotgun slug and it's only uncomfortable if you shoot it a bunch of times in a row.

Muzzleloader are a different kind of recoil. More of a smooth thrust, smokless big bore have a more instantaneous abrupt jolt.

Anyone know where to get a Leader Arms AR-12 or similar? I would rather find one locally instead of deal with shipping to FFL PITA.

Shot my SA loaded today after not having done so in about 6 months. Feels like a pile of crap compared to my SA Pro. World of difference in fit and finish. Have about 4k on the loaded and 2k on the Pro.

I'd prefer a Gen 3 or 4 but don't have issues with the 5. Maybe its just where I am but nobody seems to have them in stock. One store said they would let me know when they got one but Glock is sending them to higher-volume places first as a priority.

I'd shot it only twice until now and were never a friend of 17/19, but the 34 is meeting my requirements nearly fully, aside of my 229. Will try to get one.

Just treated myself to this beast.. CZ Scorpion EVO3 S1, already submitted my Form 1 to SBR it and have a 9mm can in jail currently.

Order the HBI spring and bunch of parts to tide me over until my SBR paperwork comes back.

I did an aftermarket trigger in it, other then that it is stock.

After shooting it and then any of my other guns I realized, I don't really enjoy shooting my glocks. They are great tools, but I don't like the grip angle, I don't like the way the frame vibrates with every shot, and the trigger is ok at best.

I've gone to the 1911, I am very happy there, but if I was looking for something in a similar 'class' to the Glock, I would go CZ SP01, P01, or TS, all day every day.

Less than two days later and I've already mod'd the hell out of this..

HB trigger springs, paddle mag release, charging handle and Paske grip. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the Luepold Delta Point Pro on an American Defense low QD mount.

Now to find a CZ folding stock that's available and to wait on my SBR and 9mm can stamps to come in. It's going to be a long 9 months!
