    hey guys, got a question of comparable recoil. what other cartridges could these be likened to? in an equal weight rifle.

    6.5 Creedmoor is comparable to the 260 Rem and the 6.5X47 Lapua.

    There is essentially no recoil on a 260R or 6.5L if the rifle weight is over 14lbs or so. I have fired both w/ and w/o brakes and there is very very little felt recoil - they are beautiful like that. Never fired a 284N so no comment there.
