Yeah, that too I remember. Especially using 500 gr. cast bullets. This thing was fitted with those rubber grips that abraded the web of my hand so much that after twenty rounds my had was bleeding from a raw blister. Never had anything to do with rubber grips again!
Yet another gun that did make my hand sore was a .45 Colt/.410 double derringer. This gun was stocked with stag grips and the palm of my hand was sore the next day. And the thing was totally useless, the barrels shot eight FEET apart downrange. And firing at a spent .30-30 case 7 1/2 yards away with .410 shell left the case still standing after ten shots.
