i had an old Mauser actioned rifle that had been rebarreled in 30-06 with a 26" barrel more like a magnum like contour, that had been sporterized maybe in the 1970's. rifle weighed like 9-9.5 lbs. with the scope. rifle had little felt recoil even with the metal buttplate. was very accurate as well. wish i had that one back.
