I was able to squeze in a few rounds at the range yesterday with my Win. 1895 .405. I had a 1" Decellerator put on it and the Ashley Ghost ring sights. It weighs 8 lbs 3 oz with no ammo. Well I put 12 rounds through it. Even at 8lbs and with a 1" pad it still kicks plenty hard! I only shot off hand. I didn't use my chrono. I was shooting the Hornady factory load. The target was set at 25 yards just to see were it was hitting. Looks like it is on in elevation and a couple inches left. It will definatley require some extra padding for the real sight in sessions on the bench. I am very pleased with it. It is actually almost the exact same length and weight as my Win. M-70 .30-06 Fthrwt. I shot the .30-06 after the .405 and it was much easier on the shoulder! Anyone else got theirs shooting yet?
