some of us actually like shooting Magnums! some of reload and use slower powders that reduce felt recoil while still maintaining velocity and energy. my 7mm Rem. Mag in a Remington M700 SPS, is one i can shoot well over 80 rounds in a day and not have a sore shoulder. key here is reloading and using the right powder.
