Several amateurs are put to the test by firing the A-Square Company’s .577 T-Rex, also known as the .577 Tyrannosaur. It appears that none of them have a clue what is about to happen when they blast their shoulders with the massive force exuding from this massive weapon. Unlike other high caliber weapons (like say the Barrett .50 Cal), the T-Rex sends the full force of the recoil into one’s shoulder. A Barrett .50 Cal has a recoil buffer mechanism that absorbs almost 100% of the shock.
The T-Rex produces 13,800 J (10,180 foot-pounds force) of muzzle energy. So you can easily imagine how painful the recoil is for the amateur shooters in the video might be.
.577 T-Rex cartridges were developed in 1993 by the firearms and ammunition manufacturing company A-Square based in Chamberlain, South Dakota in the United States. The .577 T-Rex is officially designated as the .577 Tyrannosaur. The bullet is 0.585 inches (14.9 mm) in diameter and it weighs 49 grams. The round used by the T-Rex it is a Monolithic Solid Projectile and moves at 750 m/s (2460 ft/s) after being fired.
