Re: 30-06 vs. 7mm Rem Mag felt recoil
I agree with Chuck Hawks, as the table shows the two are very comparable overall.
As a shooter of the .338 W.M. and being of smaller stature (5'9" and 165#), I personally believe MOST 'felt' recoil is in the shooters head.
To me, the recoil of the '06 is nothing, quite pleasant in fact.
You are what you do, when it counts.
