Re: whats a good low recoil long range paper puncher
Fred Zeglin has his .243 Hawk, basically a 6mm/06 slightly improved. He's getting 4040 FPS from 85 gr as his top performer, or 3867 with 100 gr pills for high BC, all out of a very reasonable 28" tube! Very versatile, but also quite overbore. Doesn't quite kick as hard as the parent 30-06 (lighter bullet). I would suggest that with the vias or Gentry "quiet" muzzlebrakes (not as quiet as without a brake, but much better sound wise than most) and the knoxx system (see my thread knoxx for any rifle) you'd be able to shoot all day long without discomfort!
