"0 " gauge punt gun. 50bmg in a rifle. 50ae in a pistol. Bigger isn't necessarily better, just check my hearing loss in the right ear, due to puntgun...

Largest caliber fired from the shoulder?


90 mm. M67 Recoilless Rifle, fires a 6.5 lb anti-tank shell, good to about 400 meters. You had BETTER have your earplugs in!

45. auto or 45/70 government, but the most powerful caliber I have shot is a 375 Holland. I'll stick to the smaller ones for me, thank-you very much.

As far as conventional rifles. The Seal Team's 50 Ca. BMG Sniper Rifles. Both the McMillan Bolt and Barrett Semi Auto.
Hunting rifle the 458 LOTT Bad A** round since the rifle does not weigh as much. Wouldn't want to take it target shooting!!!!!

It was a .458 Win Mag. Don't remember the make of the rifle. I was just getting ready to tuck the butt tight against my shoulder when it went off. It was 45 years ago and it still hurts to think about it. To this day I remember that rifle going off before I was ready and to this day I remember a painful lesson learned.
