Shooting the Tyrannosaur

In a post around about a week ago I posited the idea of hunting truly BIG game- dinosaurs (as in the upcoming Ray Bradbury-based movie, A Sound of Thunder). One of the weapons I mentioned was the .577 Tyrannosaur, a potent round indeed and one which I doubt I’d be able to handle very efficiently- and I’d rather have a weapon with recoil that was manageable rather than one which was difficult to get back on target relatively quickly.

Accurate Reloading used to have a selection of videos of people firing the Tyrannosaur and getting hammered by the recoil- free registration is now required to view the videos on their forums. I’ve just signed up and am awaiting confirmation of my account to see if the videos are still there. In the meantime the forums seem to be pretty lively and probably worth checking out if you’re at all interested in firearms or hunting.
