Re: 270 WSM. vs. 243 Win. for kid
You guys that think a 270wsm has too much kick are nuts. Do the math, a 130 gr bullet with an 8 pound rifle has 16 pounds of recoil, the 243 with a 90 gr bullet has 13 pounds. 3 pounds is nothing and you could load it down to 13 pounds. Yes, I understand that you could load the 243 down even further to probably 8 or 9 pounds but a girl that is 5'3'' and a 125 lbs can handle 13 pounds of recoil. Shoot, my sister that weighs 105 shoots my Allen Mag all the time. For the guy that got scoped by a 270 wsm, check your eye relief. Hold onto that rifle a little bit because with a rifle that has less than 20 lbs of recoil you should not have a problem getting scoped. Not trying to be rude but that's just how it is.
