Reply | Edit | Del All 30-06 vs. 270
My Dad loves his '06 Remington 7600, but as he gets older he's been complaining about the recoil knocking the heck out of him. I've been thinking about getting him a 7600 in 270 to make shooting and hunting more enjoyable for him. Is there enough of a noticable difference in recoil between the two to justify it? Or should I just get a muzzle brake installed on his '06? It will only be used for whitetail hunting and paper punching in PA and TX.

Thanks for the input . . .

I would doubt if there would be much noticible reduction in recoil between a 130 gr .270 and a 150 gr 30-06. A softer aftermarket butt pad, a strap-on shoulder pad, a muzzle break - one or all these would help in felt recoil. If you are thinking of a muzzle break, Que Industries makes a great one that can be installed by the homesmith via a paint stripping heat gun. It also has a barrel tuner built in so that you can tweak-in whatever bullet load you're shooting to the peak of accuracy.
Keep below the ridgeline!
