    Comparitive Cartridge Recoil

    Fellow Stalkers,
    Whilst researching a totally different topic came across this info which i found interesting May be you will as well?
    .............................Bullet weight ..........Velocity......... Recoil in 8lb Rifle
    ..............................in grains..................feet/sec.......... in ft/lbs

    Roberts 257 .........117.......................... 2650................10.4
    ?=6.55

    Win 243................100...........................2 960................10.7

    Win 270................130...........................3 025................18.7

    Win 308................150...........................2 800................16.5

    Springfield
    30-06...................150.......................... 2875................19.0

    These were under laboratory conditions so should be accurate.

    All good stuff, but also fit of rifle, style of rifle weight etc comes into play here too.
    IMO percieved recoil is usually alot worse than actual recoil.alot of people are scared of recoil when they see the calibre of the rifle without even firing it.
