    I pulled a 1938 Nazi bullet - it had approx. 43+ grs of a large flake powder. Each flake had a skull and crossbones stamped on it.

    Well...yeah. I rechecked the flakes and saw a fake blonde woman's image in full Cherokee attire. Gotta watch those MA people.

    There’s not much to those little M95 carbines to absorb the recoil. I bought a case of the Nazi ammo about 30 years ago and made out like a bandit selling it by the box. The 2 clips alone were worth more than I paid per box. Somewhere in my stash I still have a few boxes left and my remaining M95 is a decoration on a wall of the cabin.

    Years ago had a fellow bench up next to me and he pulls out an M95. Curious I was having one myself for several years and left eye on him as he loads up and pops one off. Two foot fireball off muzzle and no movement of upper torso. Hmmm, could not take it, up and over I went. Just watching from behind he fires another to same effect. He ejects the case and I pick up this steel case 7.62x 54R case with a really funny neck. I had to interrupt his shooting and he informed me that "THE GUY AT THE GUN STORE SAID THIS IS WHAT IT TAKES"! Somewhere in the conversation it appeared that I had hurt his feelings and he packed and rolled, never did get which gun store. Oh well, anyway just so ya'll know you can pop off cheap 54R with little to no recoil.

    This guy blows through 25 rounds of that Nazi ammo and the recoil doesn't seem to bother him either

    I could go through 25 rounds just as quick and easy as he did, myself. I'd sure as heck feel it the next day though.

    I never said I couldn't shoot it. I'm just old enough to not pretend I'm any tougher than I am, and honest enough to admit when it hurts.

    These shooters really enjoyed the recoil. Around 4:40 in the video he talks about the ammo.:

    Watch this shooter around 5:00 into the video.

    I was able to translate what they were saying: "Yep, this gun kicks but nothing like the M95."

    How long before we are all saying, man, that thing will kick the table cloth off of your head? Said with all cultural sensitivity implied, tax, tag, title not included.

    I can feel their pain! You just don't expect that little rifle to beat you up that bad. (Unless you're a girl, then it ain't nuthin')

    It is interesting how recoil affects people differently. A decade or so ago I took along a couple rifles when visiting family out of state. One of them was an H&R break-open single shot in 45-70. I had a 50 round box full of 500 grain rounds, with a max-for-the-gun charge of RL7. It's one heck of a stiff load. I think it might just be more punishing than the M95, even with the recoil pad on the H&R! I don't care to shoot more than a couple of those loads at a time anymore, but two skinny, teenage nephews shot up the whole box, and were wanting more!

    I have a felt recoil theory. Recoil doesn't bother skinny guys 'cause the shock travels down their twig arms to their stick legs and into the ground. Beefy guys feel recoil more because the shock gets knocked around their beefy innards like a pinball and never makes it to the ground. I like cupcakes and pizza so I feel recoil more. The M95s didn't bother the Hungarians because...wait for it...they were always Hungry.
