Hunting Rifles

I am thinking about buying a new hunting rifle and was looking the other day at a Tikka 300wsm and I am wondering if are any pros and cons to these rifles. The big thing I am wondering about is that it is a light weight rifle so what kind of recoil does it have?

My 300wsm has very little recoil, no more so than my Remington 7400 in 270

I wouldn't buy any short mags. My father-in-law recently bought a 243 wssm and now its really hard to find ammo for, plus the clip only holds 3 of the fat little cartridges. Stick with something that wal-mart sells ammo for. IMHO

Custom load your own rounds till 3 shots make your jaw hurt for 2 days. Perfect.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

Short mag rounds and light weight rifle will be some pretty good recoil. If you're at the range, you'll feel it. If you're hunting, you won't. If it's a round I want in the field, then I'd go for it.

Tikka, by the way, is one of the better rifles out there. Excellent craftmanship.

Talking Hunting rifle

Well, I really like the good ol 4570. Loaded a little hot in my Marlin guild gun. Or 308 for the longer shots. Steve
