RECOIL

I'VE BEEN WONDERING THIS QUESTION EVER SINCE I TRADED MY RUGER 270 FOR MY WINCHESTER MODLE 70 338 WM. WHY DID MY RUGER .270 WIN SEEM TO KICK ALOTTTT MORE THAN THE WINCHESTER .338 WIN MAG DID. IN THE .270 I SHOT PRIMARILY 130 GRAIN BULLETS FROM CORE LOKTS TO PARTITIONS, AND IN MY WINCHESTER I SHOT 200-210 GRAIN BALLISTIC TIPS AND PARTITIONS. EVERYONE THAT I HAVE TALKED TO MINUS A COUPLE OF INDIVIDUALS ALWAY SAID THAT THE .270 HAD NO KICK, BUT I DISAGREE IT WAS THE WORST RIFLE THAT I HAD EVER SHOT. IS IT ME OR IS THERE SOMETHING ABOUT THE ROUND OR WAS IT THE GUN?

Re: RECOIL

How light was the 270? Was it a feather weight?

Re: RECOIL

THE RIFLE WAS A RUGER M77II SS WITH LAMINATED STOCK, AND A BUSHNELL ELITE 3-9X40. I THINK THE GUN WAS AT 8-81/4 POUNDS. THE STOCK FIT NICE, BUT NOT AS NICE AS THE WINCHESTER.

Re: RECOIL

Bigdog,
It is probably the stock and/or the recoil pad. One day I shot a Ruger 7mm mag and a Remington 30-06. They should have had very similar recoils, but it felt (perceived recoil) like the 7mm was a lot more. I believe that you may be experiencing the same thing.

Re: RECOIL

What ever it may have been has given me a bias towards the .270, and to never own one again.

Re: RECOIL

Seems rather silly to malign a fine versatile cartridge upon a scenario that can in no way be fault of the same.
