Re: Recoil question

Although the weight is a big factor don't forget about the stock " fit " I have a 8lb scoped 300Wby that is a pleasure to shoot due to the scope being made to fit me and having a bit of cast off to it , I also have an 8lb scoped 7mm mag with a strait stock and it seems to kick alot more than the 300Wby , the actual recoil force is less but the stock desgine make it feel worse.
If you don't believe this just try shooting a left handed rifle with you right shoulder,unless the stock is strait you will feel a big differance

Re: Recoil question

Thanks guys. You've answered my question.

Also, that site is kind of neat. It has some "Taylor K.O. formula" on it that has to do with killing power.

Is this formula commonly used or are Kinetic Energy and Momentum the most commonly used methods of approxiamting theoretical killing power from a firearm's ballistics?
