A few weeks ago, I saw a new-ish movie entitled Wind River, so named for the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming on which it occurred. Good movie with lots of Obligatory Gunplay, including a scene where the hero, a government hunter, shoots a half-dozen bad guys with a Marlin .45/70 Guide Gun. The bullets fling bad guys around as though they were rag dolls. Now I've shot a .45/70 a lot, and it's never flung anything, nor have any of the rifles I've used up through .458 Lott. They knock stuff down, but in order to fling bodies through the air, the rifle would have to develop enough recoil to fling me through the air, thus sayeth Newton's Third Law of Motion.
