Is it wrong that I would actually like this?

    Love it. Not sure I’d want to fire from the shoulder while standing though.

    It wouldn’t be too bad. “Premium” muzzle energy would be around 4300 ft/lb. That’s well below .416 Rigby, which runs 5200-5600 ft/lb.* So shoulder-fired is no problem. For the pistol, I’d be thinking shooter’s gloves and a muzzle brake. [grin]

    * Several years ago, I test-fired a progressively loaded series of Hunter’s .416 Rigby. The only rifle shooting that actually left my shoulder bruised. Through my padded shooter’s vest.

      Friend in Vegas some decades with a .450 Weatherby Magnum. He loved to load them hot. Admittedly, I was not wearing a padded vest.
