couldn't say, haven't got to shoot a .308 yet I would say a .30-06 kicks more than a 12 gauge, from what I remember so

depends on the loading and the gun. a super lightweight rifle with a short barrel with a heavy bullet might come close but generally no, much less perceived recoil than a 12 ga

one thing i would like to add about the "scout rifle" concept is i think it is a very silly and failure of an attempt to re-invent the lever action. cept you end up with a slow gun thats heavier and less capable than a good lever action.

and if you do find that the .308 has more kick that whats comfortable you can always buy a gun with a threaded barrel so you can attach a muzzle brake, or maybe they make barrels for the Ruger that are threaded, that's always an option as well

The Ruger has a threaded barrel with a flash suppressor attached, add your own preference, the kick is mild however, less than my Ithaca 87

And as info...http://xssights.com/ has an extended rail which allows you to equip the GSR with any scope configuration (IER or not).
