What kind of recoil can one expect from a remington 700 bdl in 300 ultra mag in comparison to say, a .450 marlin or a 10 gauge single shot. Thanks for any input

My guess is that it hurts to shoot.

You will name your new gun "Thumper". Make sure you get a scope with lots of eye relief.

Not bad- I would compare it along the lines of a 30-06 or stout 7mm Mag. I expected it to kick my butt and was instead pleased with both recoil and accuracy. Only shot it to say I had been there and done that. I am a big guy so maybe I am biased (5'10" 230lb). Never shot a 10 gauge or a .450 Marlin, but in shotgun terms it is like a middleweight 12 gauge.

How could it possibly compare to an ought six? Unless your .300 grossly outweighs your 06, or theres a muzzle brake around here somewhere, that would violate the laws of physics.

I'm talking about the .300 ULTRA magnum, not the .300 Winchester Magnum, which is the equivelent to the .300 WSM. 7.62x54R with steel buttplates etc etc. aren't anything to contend with in my opinion.

I just recently bought one(300ultra mag), I am 6' tall and 212lbs, first shot sent the scope into my forhead, you have to make sure the stock in pushing against your shoulder pretty good and you will be ok. The kick didn't hurt me at all, but then again I've been shoot 12ga since 14.

I'm in the exact same situation, I've just never shot a .300 ultra and wanted to make sure it didn't recoil so much as to make accuracy an issue, I already have a .300 winchester magnum and have no problem at all with that.

Get a scope with some eye relief. My dad doesnt shoot much, but he handles his 8 pound (thats light) .375 pretty well from the bench.

Here i've got some numbers for you. A .300 ultra mag. 180gr bullets in an 8.5lb rifle would generate 32.8 ft lbs. of energy. Compare that to a .450 marlin 350gr bullets in an 8.5lb. rifle which would generate 35.2 ft lbs. of energy. Hope this helps.

Let me guess, youre gonna use the 300RUM to shoot deer in the hills of VA, as distances around 100 yards.. You will also need a 4x20x50mm scope for that thing.. hehehehe


I don't know about you, just kidding.. But guys around here think they need those big ass caliber guns, and high magnification scopes, to kill 145lb deer 80 yards away.. They will never learn..

Nah not that close =P I have shots here up to 600 yards, still a bit more gun than is really needed, but just one I've always kind of wanted.

What better reason to buy a new gun other than you want it Thanks for all the replies
