    How's the recoil of a 444 marlin compared to that of a .270 WIN (both rifles the same weight)?

    thanks!

    You really can not compare apples to apples with these two caliber’s but, my book shows 8 pound rifles 270 with 100 grain bullet 18.2 free recoil. And the 444 with 240 grain 21.1 this should give you a base line to go buy.

    The .444 has more recoil.
