I have a earier rem 7600 in 35 whelen with a 22" barrel and top loads with heavy bullets it does kick, but not any thing you can,t handle if you are a shooter. lighter 200 gr bullets its not bad at all.
My 225gr handloads in a wood stocked 22" barrel isn't very friendly off the bench and self ejects. I shoot a fair bit. I'm not recoil sensitive...I will even admit it laid my eye open once lol. I knew it was coming. I proned out on a boulder to take a shot. The angle of my head and body...I knew what was coming. Lol.
Most factory loads are pretty tame though...but you also aren't getting the velocity and full potential of the round.
