Re: Very Low Recoil Deer Rifle

I put together a Reminton Model 7 for my eight year old last year in 7.08 It wears a David White aluminium brake, barrel shortened and re-crowned, shortened, pillar bedded thumbhole Richards Microfit stock with a Sims pad. It is a tack driver with lighter 120 gr Ballistic tips and you can literally feel almost nil recoil. Personally I think the thumbhole stock allows some of the recoil to be spread over a wider area instead of just the shoulder (palm of hand). He weighs 70 lbs and goes through 20 rounds and begs for more.

Re: Very Low Recoil Deer Rifle

The .243 I have now will be the base for this project. I have a Savage barrel nut wrench on the way, so I can go with a different barrel in the future. I will be ordering a thumb hole stock from Boyds after I get back from a vacation we are taking tomorrow. I will shorten it, fit a Sims pad, and see how that works. If that is not enough recoil reduction a heavy barrel and brake are the next thing. To be honest, I am much more excited about this project that he is. He is a very stoic German. There is no way he is going to let me buy him a new rifle. The fact that I can spend as much or more on this gun is our little secret. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Very Low Recoil Deer Rifle

get him a 223 it will kill deer with a 55 grain bullet
I have killed them at 250 yards with a 223 Winchester
I have also killed them with a 30 m1 carbine
you don't need a Canon to kill deer.
And my uncle in missouri never used anything other than a
22 long rifle.
