Hey guys i am thinking about buying either a 454 casull in 12" or a 7mm-08 in 15" barrel. How do the rifle calibers like the 7mm-08 compare in recoil to lets say the 454 casull or the 44 mag. thanx John :grin:

The 708 is much less than the 454. More of a push. The 454 has a nasty upwards snap to it that has a tendancy to try and plant the scope into your head. I don't have the exact figures but I think the 708 had a recoil # of 28 and the 454 was around 32 ft lbs.

I agree with duffy. 7-08 is a much easier cartridge to shoot in the Encore and it has a much further practical range. It also works good for varmint shooting.
