Less recoil than a .30 .30?
My son, who is just starting out hunting, complained about the recoil of the model 94 he was practicing with. I made sure he was seating it in his shoulder properly, but still, he couldn't do it after even a few shots. Do you think a recoil pad would be the answer? Another rifle? I have a .243 but it is long (7600) and although I've never had issue killing deer with it, I've heard that the .243 caliber is more reliant on accuracy to kill deer with. In other words, you have to be a better shot and maybe it isn't something for beginning shooters, even tho the recoil is light. Anybody shoot a 6.5 Creedmore? Is the recoil light? Is it enough to kill deer without having to be a sniper?
