Just wanted to throw this out there and see what kind of response i get...I have a Browning BAR .270 gas operated rifle. I have a 12 yo boy that is abot 5ft 85 lbs or so. Do yall think he would be able to shoot the .270 without it scaring the daylights out of him? I have 130gr shells and i have looked for the managed recoil rounds but with no avail. Hes a relatively experienced shooter with a .22, M-4 .223, and .410. I normally shoot a bolt action 30-06 synthetic stock and I'd say the 06 has considerably more recoil than the BAR .270. Ive never shot a .243 and really dont want to purchase one seeing how i already own a .270 and 30-06. Thanks for the input.
