I was just wondering what peoples thoughts or perceptions are on different recoiling calibres. Am I right in thinking there are different types of recoil, velocity type and felt recoil? I have .243, 6.5 x 55 and .308. They are all barrels so can test recoil or compare quite well as the gun stock/ weight remains constant. Admittedly there are different weights or grains for each calibre, but there are obviously differences between each. I actually find the .243 to appear quite "sharp" to me (90 grs, 20 inch barrel) as opposed to the 6.5 and 308 more of a felt recoil to the shoulder. (all very slight differences though). Maybe I'm "feeling" the velocity of the .243 more in a certain way? I was just wondering if people are more tolerant of a certain type of recoil?, or feel certain calibres differently? or whether someone has found their perfect calibre/ bullet weight combination.
