    Question Garrett .540 & Marlin?

    Does anyone KNOW...the recoil in ft. lbs. of that .540 gr. Hammerhead load from Garrett in the 8 pound Marlin 1895 SBL ?

    Trying to compare that which I have...to that which I may want, that is, a .416 RemMag. in the Mauser M 03 Africa PH rifle ...??
    (Weight: Steel approx. 4.3 kg (9 1/2 lbs) (shooting high grade 400 gr. ammo )

    Don't know the exact but I can tell you they are way less than my 416 Ruger and a bunch less than my 458 Lott. Honestly, they don't recoil much more than a hot 400 grn Speer. I've pushed at least 40 of them through mine with no issues at all. I would shoot them more if getting them up here wasn't such an issue.
