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`m real parcial to my 7mm rem mag, but recoil is heavy, but loaded with the hornady hot loads she really puts em out there, i have a friend who shoot`s a 300 ultra mag. bench rest with home reloads,best kill to date is a jack rabbit at a little over 1900 yards yea thats right 1900 yards:eek:, he is ex marine sniper:D, if you read Varmit mag. you seen him in the back of book.

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.
