Re: Deer rounds that allow viewing impact

The flow and pressure start as soon as the bullet begins to accelerate up the barrel as it is compressing and shoving the air ahead of it and the brake is accually working before the bullet passes the port
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

Re: Deer rounds that allow viewing impact

The design of the rifle has allot to do with it. heavy long barrel gun with a straight back stock produce recoil straight back. They don't climb or jump. My 270 AI and the scope turned up to 24X I can see the holes appear on paper out to 200 yard. Beyond that it would require a higher power to see the .277 holes. The stock is straight back and it has a 8 1/2 pound barrel without a brake
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.

Re: Deer rounds that allow viewing impact

What I get from these posts is that the recoil energy in foot pounds should equal the weight of the rifle if you want to get by without a muzzle brake. Here is a list of cartridges that would likely go under 10 pounds recoil:

.243 Win.
6mm Rem.
.243 WSSM
.257 Roberts
7.62x39 Soviet

Under 11:

6.5x55 Swede
.30-30 Win.

Perhaps the numbers I saw for he 6.5x55 and .257 Roberts are for the lower velocity factory loads. So, basically it looks like any of those listed above, plus other equivalents not listed and any common deer cartridge that can safely be loaded down to ten pounds of recoil energy.
Then there are muzzle brakes, but I couldn't find exact figures for those.
