That will pass also. It really comes down to Rifle design and weight. If the stock causes a roll or lift of the bore it does reduce felt recoil, drop at comb. If it looks like a tube on a 2x4, chances are your gonna feel it. My Browning BLR '81 had good weight, not heavy. But it had a strait stock, not the newer pistol grip type. So it had a steel receiver, that was a huge plus, but the recoil would rattle your teeth, no good w/ titanium holding your neck together. I sold it. I'd rather take out a 70 year old low pressure 9.3x57 spitting 286gr pills out to 150 yards then get beaten by a .308 using 165gr for the same purpose.
Here are the numbers for both.
9.3x57 286gr at 150 yards: Velocity: 1819fps Energy: 2102fp
.308 165gr at 150 yards: Velocity: 2300fps Energy: 1937fp.
Don't think I loose anything!
