    reduce recoil for 270

    Thanks for all the help. I stopped at a local gunshop here in town and he think there's a solution to my problem. He wants to install a Bell and Carlson stock on my Ruger. He said that this has helped other shooters and he will drill and fill the stock with some lead if need be. He did say to start with some brand of reduce recoil ammuntion when I go back to the range.

    If this doesn't work I'll start looking at the 243 OR 7MM08.
    Once again, Thanks for all your help.

    Is there something special about that Ruger 270?

    If not I'd look at this as the perfect time to pick up a new rifle and "expand your horizons" a bit.

    My favorite caliber is the 30-06 and I've owned a couple of 270's in the past but the rifle I shoot the most now is a 243. Felt recoil is less, ammo price is about the same depending on the store and brand of ammo. After getting punched by the 06 for fifty years shooting the 243 is about like shooting a BB gun.

    I'll also second the motion for a 6.5x55 Swede for a lesser recoiling and good performing round.

    Park the 270 to the side for a while, you can always come back to it.
