    Stock design and fit also plays a HUGE part in felt recoil. A 243 with a Barnes will penetrate through a moose easily, projectiles matter more than headstamps. Also, a 270 that fits her well should not be a problem and a Barnes or partition in 270 or 243 will kill any animal in AK. Now if your talking following up a wounded grizzly, no I wouldn't pick either but for killing an unsuspecting animal, either the 243 or 270 with the right bullet will do fine. Personally I'd rather shoot a lighter kicking rifle than use a brake'd rifle for hunting purposes.

    Really, I’m down with putting a break on any rifle. Notice I didn’t say carbine. To be effective with a rifle you can’t be scared of it hurting you as well as putting a lot of rounds down range with it. A break will aid in both of those...

    Earplugs combined with good muffs go a long way toward taming the perception of recoil, too.

    Thanks gents. I have no exerience shooting anything larger than White Tail deer, and almost any semi decent slig will do the job for that. Almost every source states bullet constructio and placement are the two most important things in bringing home the meat and I believe that as I used to hunt using FMJ ammo back in my pauper days and it worked fine. Son is going to find someone on base to let his wife shoot some unbraked rifles so she can test recoil.

    A 12ga 870 shooting Brenneke Black Magic slugs will be carried for bear medicine if needed.

    Thanks for the advice and patience

    Muzzle taming brakes are similar to exhaust stystems with a holes in the muffler.
    Very loud report when shooting big bore rifle better spent on a "Walkers Game Ear" might be considered. Tinnitus in some folks gets to be a permanent affliction. Ask me , in a loud voice, (almost shouting)
    Adrenaline during a hunt mitigates the shock of recoil anyway.
