Does anybody know the free recoil energy given off by 243 win, .270 winchester, .308, 30.06, or 7mm remington magnum, and 300 win mag? I have tried looking for it on the site and didnt see anything. I just curious how the recoil is for all of these calibers. I see people talk about the recoil and am curious what it actually is. Thank you

well i'm no expert, but theres a book called "cartriges of the world" that a friend of mine had that listed recoil energys for everyting you mentioned. i can only rememmber two of them. the 30-06 is in the neighborhood of 20 lbs. of free recoil energy, while the 300 rem ultra mag in near 40 lbs. these are two rounds i shoot so i recall them. if you look in the midway master catalog you'll see the book there, it has all kinds of other tech info also. hope this helps :)

Recoil energy within a given caliber is dependent on powder charge used, bullet weight used, velocity, and the weight of the rifle as used.

Here (http://matrix.dumpshock.com/raygun/downloads/recoil.html) is a good place to formulate if you handload or have the required input figures to work with.
