    We had a kid in our school whoes name was Ray Merrit. You know how school kids are. When something wasn't to good it was said to have no "Ray". Well H&R Handi rifles have no Ray when it comes to stock design. They have none and and that to the wieght and in heavy calibers you have a kicker. The wieght of rifle and stock design many times will have more effect on felt recoil than cartridge.

    I briefly owned a Springfield sporter back in the 1980's. Fired it eight times and promptly sold it. Way too much kick for me. In contrast, my .308 Savage 99 rifle has been Magna-Ported to eliminate muzzle jump and its a sweet shooter.

    Aussiemick -
    Years ago, I helped a friend sight in his -06 Handi-Rifle. Firing from the bench off of sandbags, it really "get your attention". Once sighted in and shooting from field positions (NOT Prone), it wasn't bad. It's not a rifle to shoot all afternoon with, but for a walkabout HandiRifle - it worked well.
    If you load your own, lighter bullets at reduced velocity are great plinking rounds. Good Luck!

    I sold my .30-06. It was a US Model 1917 sporterized. If you load a 180 grain bullet to 2700-2750 FPS, the recoil is substantial. I didn't like it. Everyone's tolerance is difference, test some before you buy.

    I have a Rem. 760 Gamemaster in .06 and a Winchester Mdl. 88 .308 lever. There is very little difference in the recoil....at least that's me. They both have brought a lot of meat home.
