The recoil on my 7mmSTW is similar to my buddy's .300 WM. I have shot 60+ rounds in a day out of my STW (no muzzle brake
) and sure my shoulder will be sore the next day, but not so sore I can't use it. Pop you a few Advils before you go to sleep. Wake up, pop 2 more, and you should be good to go.
I don't own any 6.5's b/c of how close in diameter they are to the 7mm's, and I have a number of 7mm rifles in different calibers. So for me, it would be kind of redundant to own a 6.5 and 7mm. Although, both are very good calibers. The 6.5's I hear awesome things about.
I do like the .300 WM, but not enough to own one. It is an excellent caliber. I reload for one. One of my buddies has one, and I reload for his rifle, so I have gotten pretty good and knowledgeable on reloading for them. LOL
6.5-284 is a hell of round. Depending on what you are doing with it, should depend on what caliber you go with... For example, if you're hunting whitetails.....The 6.5-284 should be more than sufficient. If you're hunting whitetails and possible other larger game, the .300 WM might be a better alternative.
