So the recoil on a 270 is not as much as a 30 06 or 7mm?

Not even close.

Can you rate each one a 1-10 on recoil?

I love my Remington 700 VTR .223 with Nikon 223 scope for target shooting.

For hunting I have Sauer .270 with Leupold scope.

Have you taken a peek at the Ruger Scout? Performance is probably not as good as a highly specialized long rifle - but it's handy. Feels right. Kinda like a bolt action lever gun.

Hard to get one right now, the waiting list is long. Supposedly their hottest seller as of Jan 1.

The .270 is less destructive and has a greater maximum point blank range.
