In the gun world...

...they use what is termed "recoil index" to measure what kind of kick to expect out of a gun.

A 30-06 has a rating of 1.0, which for many people is about the limit of what they can shoot multiple rounds thru comfortably.

A 243 BR is rated at about 0.4, a 270 is about a 0.8, etc.

The 600 Nitro Express is rated at 9.4.

9.4 times more punishing power than a 30-06.

Now watch the video.

"The best is yet to come. There is a .700 Nitro Express!"
