There are various MB designs and sizes with varying claims of effectiveness. End user's preferences (and intended uses, i.e. target or hunting (esp. LR), etc ...) is the key.
" is all relative, it is different for each person, what is excessive for one user might not be for you and vice versa. Due to the extreme possible variations in firearm design, weight, grip design, ammunition being used (bullet weight, velocity, powder charge), etc ... and of course "people" it will not give you a direct correlation from one firearm to another.
Anyways, now that we've got that out of the way, my Savage 111F in .300WM has the old Holland's QD and my SAKO M995 in .300WM has a custom designed and built by my gunsmith that is similar to the QD except with 4 holes on side instead of 3 ... and both shoots (my felt recoil) comparable to that of a .243.
Good luck and happy safe shooting/hunting.
