The kick is very mild. Nothing to flinch about.

oh so nice!

it's a little gun, nice lightweight, and the kick is very mild.

no where near the realm of how a big 12ga can kick with some slugs...

it really feels like a rifle... it's actually built on savages 110 rifle receiver I believe is the model.

it's more than a .243, maybe like a .270win? IMO. or 25-06?

btw someone asked about entrance/exit holes, the exit hole was like say the entrance was the size of your pinky, the exit was your thumb, not sure if the bullet even mushroomed at all, it exited so couldn't say, not sure if those barnes 20ga sabot, which is a muzzleloading bullet are copper solid etc... or designed to mushroom/break up much or at all?

if rem's accutips end up shooting better groups I'll make the switch to those, at the time both shot the same and I was sighted in for the barnes so that's what I went with.
