Default Unless it kicks so much that the shooter is scared of it

We have all seen it, someone with a cannon on the firing line that wishes it didn't hurt so much with each pull of the trigger. That is why I am anti magnum, not that they aren't incredible. It is just that 99% of the shooters on the line would be better served with something from the standard list of cartridges(30-06 class). I have seen Deer hunters sighting in a 375 H&H. It was bought for bragging rights at Deer camp that year. The shooter was sure his buddy would top him with a 416 Rem next year.
Let's see a Deer weights ~200 lbs, an Elephant several thousand. I guess it would be funny watching the 416 shooter sight in for the years opener. I just hope they have plenty of eye relief from their scope.

The one big gun I sold and would like to have back was the 444 Marlin. The kick was more of a push back rather than a big hard kick jaw shattering recoil.

Default 444 Marlin, a 44 Mag on steriods....

I always thought that this was an interesting cartridge. They say it was better using the 265gr loading as the 240gr did not have the SD for good penetration. I have some 315gr GC lead bullets for my 44 Mag pistols that probibly would be perfect for it.

rather than panic about the kick focus on exhaling while you shoot. It steadies your shot and you'll be so focused on exhaling properly that the kick wont be what you're paying attention to.

Older thread, I know. But I thought I'd mention that I plan on hunting with one of my two .444s opening day of rifle season in Kentucky. I have had a .444S for several years now that is very accurate shooting the 265gr LE ammo and also picked up, a couple months ago a .444P with 18.5" ported barrel. I'm not so hot on those ports, but that's the only way the short Marlin .444s were made.
