Big Gun Owners,
I have a question about lightweight rifles with ported barrels or muzzle brakes
. I am a small man and currently have a .270 Sendero, so the recoil is tolerable. I read all the time about "little bitty ladies shooting big .338s while hunting", however, do they really know the rifle, or do they just shoot it once at an animal after their husband/guide has zeroed it for them. If this isn't the case, ladies I applaud you, no offense meant. I need less felt recoil to be consistent.
If I were to buy something like a .338, will these devices reduce the felt recoil enough that it will be tolerable in a "lightweight" rifle?
Can this be done with a lightweight or do I just need to man up, carry the heavy one, and wait for the mule to kick?
