Yah i think im gonna get a 300 Win mag 300 WSM or 270 wsm get a browning with BOSS and then just put a limb saver recoil pad on there that thing wont kick at all haha
ox - Sounds like you're leaning in this direction...

Here's my elk rifle...http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/4049/p1020705gl0.jpg

It's a Browning A-Bolt II in .300 WSM and with a BOSS. I bought an aftermarket slip-on gel type of recoil pad from Cabela's. When shooting it with the perforated BOSS and with the pad, it's a soft shooter for a .300 Mag.... but it DOES bark... I wear hearing protection when hunting. I also have the CR BOSS as well (no perforations)... but I haven't shot with it yet.

Good luck with your choice!!

If your shooting an Auto and going to a bolt action, your going to have a big difference in felt recoil between the 2 types of guns.. So a 300 WSM in a bolt action will kick a lot harder than a 300 WSM auto.You will be more accurate with a bolt action though.Keep that in mind when you picking out your gun..

My advice would be to Avoid the BOSS! Unless you plan to hunt with ear muffs on, those things will destroy your hearing. Trust me I know. Recoil pads are the way to go for recoil reduction. the muzzle brakes and such are just not worth it.

Caliber Selection reduces felt recoil lots.. Followed by Limbsaver Recoil pads IMO :D

It will take a lot out but it won't be any .243.

In my opinion... no.

Why would you want a .300 Win Mag over a .300 WSM if recoil is a concern. Look at Chuck Hawk's table that I sent you a link to. For the same loading, the WSM will produce9% less recoil than the standard Win Mag. Do the math.

Yes, muzzle breaks are loud... but at your size/age, I'd put up with the noise to avoid the recoil... fwiw.

When I say put up with the noise, I mean you should be wearing hearing protection at all times... hunting included!!

Thiws one is very similar to the one that I have... http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp?id=0016465226562a&type=product&cm Cat=SEARCH&returnPage=search-results1.jsp&No=0&Ntt=recoil+pad&noIma ge=0&Ntk=Products&QueryText=recoil+pad&amp ;Ntx=matchall&N=4887&Nty=1

I like mine. It's quite effective.
