What would you compare the recoil of a 30/30 to?

    I've shot mine from every conceivable angle and position, except possibly off my nose. Worst thing I ever experienced from it was getting bucked off a horse.

      Ah dunno...

      You are asking for a comparison.

      A .30-30 is to a .300 Win Mag as a bug fart is to an atomic bomb!

        Dad's model 94 Winchester is like a soft punch in the shoulder.
        Dad's Marlin with the curved steel buttplate is like taking a sledgehammer blow the the shoulder.
        Both are child's play compared to my brothers 300 weatherby magnum 6 1/2 pound mountain rifle, that thing is very nasty.

          crm3006 is right on the money. A Marlin .30-30 with a 170gr. has a recoil energy of around 10ft.lbs it is almost exactly the same as a 3" .410. A .30-30 has the lowest recoil of any "big game" rifle.
