This comes as a results of the what is the hardest kicker thread I started.
I noticed that many thoughts centered on weight and stocks.
It kind of resembles my thinking but not my understanding.
While some of you boys talked about guns that I would have guessed would have been on the list--oddly, a .Wheeland was not---some ecchoed my feelings about the o6. I didn't like it because of the stock--thin and that steel buttplate but the o6 carbine was not nearly as bad.
What--in your opinion---betrays a caliber and what helps calm the kick.
I have my own thoughts but what the hell do I know.
BTW---I like the .22 mag, does that make me tuff?
Blessings

Muzzle break will calm anything down but who the hell wants one

rifle weight plays a large role. i have two .375 RUM rifles, very similar except one is a few ounces lighter than the other, and the difference in recoil is noticable.

Rifle weight, stock fit, barrel weight and length, scope height/cheek weld.

Real recoil is simple math involving

The rifles weight
projectile wight
projectile velocity
powder charge weight

Plug that info in here and you will calculate recoil

How the stock fits you. The quality of the recoil pad, muzzle breaks, etc, deteremine how you feel it.

If your actually going to have to use a cartridge/rifle combo that's going to kick more than what you like then a properly equipped and fitting rifle is nice for sure. But experience/practice is what makes it all come together.
