My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: Low recoil long range cartridge

how does recoil compare to lets say a 7mm-08 or a 308 winchester?

Depending on the weight of the rifle, it should be pretty similiar.

Re: Low recoil long range cartridge

has anyone thrown around the idea of necking down a 7mm RUM to .264 i think it would be able to push 140 grainers around 3400 fps.
