My father in-law has a Weatherby Vanguard 270 wsm and I have a savage 30-06 since I move here he put on a recoill but stock on it and we sighted both in at the same time even with the recoil but stock I would have to say the 270 kicks more.

i'm not sure but i think the ballistics are somewhat different on the short mag 270's. it's a totally different case than the 270 winchester round. i've only shot one 270 wsm, and only shot it about five rounds, so i can't really offer a comparison personally.

The short mag would kick harder than the 06 because it uses more powder

There is recoil and then there is perceived recoil two different things. Perceived recoil is more a matter of stock design than actual physics.
Fire two identical rounds in different rifles and the perceived recoil will be different its a matter of the weight of the arm and how much drop the stock has.
The straighter stocks as found on many if not most big bores allow the recoil to be straight back where a stock with a lot of drop will recoil back and up at the same time.

Actually if you were to load two different weight bullets using the same powder the lighter bullet requires more more propellant to achieve optimum velocity.
A 180 gr. 30/06 loaded with IMR 4064 might fill the case 5/8 to 3/4 capacity while a 125 gr. will actually be a compressed load completely filling the case.
Recoil is a by product of bullet weight and the velocity you are driving it at and not the amount of propellant used. Its that equal and opposite reaction thing.
