Re: What's your opinion?

Lol on the last post. I use my 7mm RM sporter for hunting, but I don't really think its "fun" to shoot and I'm a pretty big guy.
For fun I shoot either a .22 lr or my .223 with my buddies.
I can handle quite a bit of recoil and have shot a .50 barrett while I was in the AF and used to test ammo.
But seriously, being able to handle recoil and wanting a lot of it are two different things.
I can shoot my 7mm RM accurately, but the most recoil I can honestly say that I can send a huge number of rounds downrange with and say I "enjoy" is maybe .308. These are all "unbraked" of course.
BTW, my 7mm RM sporter has worse recoil than the Barrett .50 i used to test with, so felt recoil is waaaaay different than actual recoil.

Re: What's your opinion?

here is one for ya!
savage 10/110BA bolt action in .338Lapua (and learn to reload you will need it) And put a real nice scope on it one designed for the long shots. Be prepared to put 1 to 1.5K out for a good LD scope. Lepould, Swarsksi just to name 2
For the kind of shooting you are talking about go extreme.

I shoot a Savage 111-11 7MM Rem Mag. It happens to have a limb saver
recoil pad. I can spend the day at the range with no discompfort from recoil. I have a brake, but I some times forget to turn it on. no problem. might give it a try.

Get the Savage 300win mag. If you want to go bigger you can change the barrel and bolt face yourself for very little money compared to buying a new bigger caliber. Pre cut barrels are easy had from many places. Unscrew the barrel nut then the barrrel put the new one on and set your head space. Hole job can be done in 30 min.

Don't forget the good old 375 H&H or 375 Weatherby, very "good" recoil, and if you load it's even better

My son has a couple of rifles, one is a 7mm Rem Mag, Winchester model 70. The other is a Winchester Model 70 in a 270 Caliber. He was complaining a
lot about his shoulder hurting. He put a limb saver recoil pad on each of them. Both seem to be tamed down a lot.
