Felt Recoil Comparison Table

By Kevin Madsen


Numerous people have made attempts to qualify (and minimize) felt recoil. Recoil contributes to flinching and increases recovery time for subsequent shoots. The contribution of noise level (muzzle blast) and rifle jump (pitch) to subjective recoil are rarely considered.

Felt recoil is nearly intangible due to the number of variables that contribute to the perception of recoil. Components include site and area of transfer, duration and intensity of force over time plus numerous variations inherent in the differences between shooters. The latter including weight, sensitivity, mental focus, stance, area and location of stock butt, frequency and number of events.

Objective recoil estimates are generally confined to measuring kinetic energy (in foot-pounds) and velocity of impact (in feet-per-second). These estimates do not even attempt to consider the subjective variables that contribute to the recoil a shooter actually feels.

Felt recoil is reduced by increasing the time interval and contact area (recoil pads), the amount and time period that the energy that is transferred (gas operated semi-automatic actions) and the redirection of gasses (muzzle brakes). Effectiveness of these �fixes� varies by gun and cartridge, but semi-autos and muzzle brakes may each reduce felt recoil 30% or more.

Chuck Hawks, who is both practical and knowledgeable, set 15 ft. lbs. (energy) and 10 fps (recoil velocity) of recoil as the upper limit that many persons subjectively perceive as "comfortable" and 20 ft. lbs. of recoil energy as the maximum that an average hunter can handle without developing an accuracy affecting flinch. I chose the corresponding recoil velocity of 13.3 fps to complement the 20 ft. lb. figure. I then combined these two estimates to generate a comfort level index* and an average max level index** where the above levels factor down to a value of 1. That places cartridges such as the .243 Win. (100 grains at 3400 fps), .257 Roberts (120 grains at 2800 fps), and 6.5X55 Swede (140 grains at 2650 fps) right on the edge of the comfort level. Of course, individuals perceive recoil differently and this varies even by situation, with mental focus--such as a shooting at range as opposed to during a hunt--playing a major part. Effects are generally more pronounced during practice and sighting in, where we tend to anticipate the recoil, and less pronounced where our attention is focused on something else, such as on a game animal at the climax of a hunt.

*(RE/15*RV/10)/ (15*10) = comfort level index, simplified to (E*RV)/150 or E/15

**(RE/20*RV/13.3)/(20*13.3) = ave. max level index, simplified to (E*RV)/266.6 or E/20

Comfort level index over 1.77 are above Average max level index

Recoil Velocity (RV) = ((BWgr/7000*MV)+(PC*PWgr/7000))/GW

Recoil Energy (RE) = ((BWgr/7000*MV)+(PC*PWgr/7000)) squared/(32.17*2*GW)

Table is based on the values given in the "Expanded Rifle Recoil Table" by Chuck Hawks. (See the Tables, Charts and Lists page.)
