    My 450 Bushmaster with Hornaday Black loads has a more violent recoil than my hand loaded 45-70 in an SBL. 35gr of Buffalo Rifle, 405gr hard cast lead flatnose.
    450 Bushmaster is on an AR platform FWIW

    Just yesterday I sighted in my son's Classic Model 1895 using the 325-grain "gummy tips". His rifle has the stock Marlin recoil pad. Shot 10 rounds, I think. Oh, ya know yer shootin' but it ain't too bad. On MY Classic 1895 I've installed a grind-to-fit Limbsaver pad. I shoot handloads in my rifle. My pet loads are a 405-grain cast and a 400-grain JSP, both with a MV of 1,800 fps. They recoil a bit more than the Hornady Leverevolution rounds, so I'm glad I put the Limbsaver on my rifle.

    Last time I shot a box of 325's (mostly standing up), I also thought the recoil was lighter than I was expecting. Of course, my SIL would only shoot the HSM Cowboy Action (405gr, 1300 FPS), and the lack of recoil on those was pretty crazy.

    Recoil is subjective but I can say the LE 325s pack a wallop out of my 12.5" SBR with the hard buttplate.

    I cast all my bullets for 45-70. A 405 with a gas check, and a 315 with a gas check. Mostly I shoot the 315GC in my guide gun and the load using H4198 give me right about 1600fps. It's an accurate comfortable load to shoot. The 405GC uses the same powder for 1550fps. A little more stout but not by much. These loads are powerful enough for anything I'll hunt in Az.

    I shot about 40, even though I was in a t-shirt, with 1895 sbl it wasn't annoying, in fact I'd say delicate.
    In hunting action you will also feel less.

    My 1895XLR 45-70 came from the factory stock with a Limbsaver recoil pad. Those Limbsaver's really cut down the felt recoil.
    I shoot all my rabbits with Hornady's dangerous game bullets.

    5 meters?

    Yesterday in the night, I had the opportunity to shoot a wild boar 5 meters away during a nighttime wait when the boar approached me. The adrenaline made it seem to me that I was shooting with compressed air :risa:


    If shooting at the target seems to me a moderate recoil, in the hunting action it seems irrelevant to me
    You must have flipped him over at that range!? lol

    Yes, lol, definitely the animal did not move an inch, I shot just under his ear.

    I had never shot one so close. It was very exciting for me

    My 1895 Cowboy 45-70 kicks pretty darn close, with Winchester Super X 300 gr. (or is it 325 gr.?) to my 16ga.dbl. bbl. shotgun , with some of my "warmed up" reloaded 16 ga.shotgun shells. Nearly identical in all aspests of "recoil."

    But it don't matter ....'cause , you're not having enough fun if your shoulder ain't blue......LOL
