Thinking about buying a new rifle..have not decided on which brand I want yet but have narrowed it down to 3 calibers..it will be for my wife and myself to both shoot..so recoil is a deciding factor. I am thinking about a 270 SSM, a 7mm-08, or a 308....been looking a the ballistics of the 270 SSM and it has better kinetic energy and flatter shooting that the other two calibers, but I have also heard that they kick harder than the other two as well. I have owned a 7mm-08 and a 308..compared to these how does the 270 SSM kick? (from those of you who have shot the 270super short mag)...this gun will be used for whitetail hunting in MS...thinking about the 270SSM for occasional mule deer hunting out west..thanks!!
