Re: Thunder@1400 yards

Yep it has a brake and I'd venture to guess that the recoil would be more like a 270 Win than a 300 Win. But I'll stand corrected if GG disagrees.

    I have a 338 Lapua with a #4/5 barrel with a brake and I would imagine it is shooting bullets at about the same speed as the thunder. The brake is not fancy, but it has way less recoil than a 270 without a brake. I worked on a Ruger 270 and s Sendero 270 and both of those kicked more than the 338 Lapua.

    Stock geometry comes into play as well. My 338 Lapua is in a McHale stock.

    A Remington adl 270 is pretty comparible actually. It's not bad at all-for a hunting gun.

    Remington makes (made) two versions of the model 700. One version is the "ADL" and one version is the "BDL". The difference is the blind magazine versus a bottom drop magazine. Both versions will come chambered in the 270 Winchester cartridge.

    The ADL stock is a bit stiffer, thus better for smaller groups if bedded and tuned accurately.
