    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 )

    Here's a link to Chuck Hawks' rifle recoil table that may start to give you an idea.

    My Lyman's 48th edition reloading manual has some formulas that would help you get a good assumption if you can obtain the data it requires to complete the calculations.
