Im a small framed person (6'2, 145lbs), and some folks seem to think because of that, my body rolls with recoil more. Which definetly goes back to recoil effecting everyone differently. All my rifles are magnums, and my larger older brother, sticks with .22 centerfires. I have a lot of fun out of that...lol
My wife uses a slip-on Limsaver on her 7mm RM Ruger. Works great for her !
