Thread: Felt Recoil Remington 700 vs. 710 Caliber 300 Win Mag

    Default Felt Recoil Remington 700 vs. 710 Caliber 300 Win Mag

    When comparing my Remington 700 SPS 300 Win Mag recoil wise to a Remington 710 the Remington 710 kicks less.

    Both are almost same weight but the 700 SPS has the Limbsaver recoil pad while the 710 has a hard rubber pad.

    Why is there so much difference?

    The stock design looks similar too me.

    one theory is that some of the synthetic stocks flex a bit when they fire, apparently soaking up recoil when shooting fromt he bench...

    Are the barrel lengths the same? Did you weigh them? Prolly the best answer is the squishy pad on one and a hard pad on the other.
