Well, finally got around to shooting my lightweight a couple days ago. Recoil was not too bad, seemed "fast" and "sharp" but did not seem any heavier than it did in its previous life when it weighed a pound and a half more. It almost seemed like the lighter weight had less momentum on the shoulder.

I was shooting it between rounds with the 300 Weatherby, and it seemed a fair bit less than the 300.

It also grouped better than it did in the factory plastic stock, which I attribute to the much stiffer kevlar stock.

roklok, glad the range session went well. 3150 fps is up there at the top of the range for 130gr so it a good representation of .270 recoil.
