What's the difference in recoil between the Ruger Mini
14(.223) and the Mini 30(7.62X39)???

paulrabe78 , thanks for the rifle recoil table. I have been wondering about several comparisons myself.

No problem. I found it about a year ago and I'm glad to share it.

Though not an entirely accurate indicator, I like to watch clips on youtube of people shooting various calibers and seeing how much (or how little) the weapons recoil.

The most pronounced recoil I saw came from guys shooting 4 bore double rifles.

But I digress. As jwc007 noted, there isn't much of a difference between the two in that respect.

Wow, how would you like to shoot that? I know I sure would not.
I'd try it once just to say I've done it. But not without a recoil reduction pad of some kind in place first. The worst recoil I've ever experienced was with my Winchester 1400 12 gauge which has a plastic butt.

A few years ago I purchased a box of magnum turkey loads just to see what type of pattern they would produce. After the first two shots, I no longer cared about the pattern because my shoulder felt like it had been hit head on by a charging Rhino.

It was, IMO, worse by far, than shooting buckshot or slugs of any type which only give a hard rearward shove.
