Jerry Miculek looks like he’s finally found a gun and cartridge combination that he’d rather not tangle with again, and I don’t think any of us will blame him. Here he’s taking a stock 4″ stock Smith & Wesson .500 Magnum, firing 5 300-grain Hornady bullets as fast as he can pull the trigger.

It’s a beast, to put it mildly.  Make sure you watch the slow-motion playback of the high-speed film. You can see the recoil ripple through his arms up to his shoulders. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it, and I have no desire to experience it for myself.
