I just purchased a Kimber Montana in .300 WSM. I'm taking it shooting tonight and I'm already smitten with this gun so it isn't going anywhere but, I'm wondering about the recoil. There seems to be two schools of thought about the recoil on the internet. One group says it's no worse than a .30-06 because of the way the cartridge is designed and efficiently burns powder. The other group says it has a sharper, faster recoil than the .300 Win Mag because is generates velocity so quickly and can be horrible in a light weight gun.
So, anyone shoot the .300 WSM in a light gun and what would you compare the recoil to?
