28 Nosler Recoil
« on: January 13, 2019, 10:04:14 PM »
I am considering a 28 Nosler. I like the ballistics but have never shot one. Compared to 30-06 howís the recoil? I know that is a bit subjective but trying to get a general idea of what I might be up against.

More than 30-06. To me it feels similar to a 300 win mag.

Jellymon was right on with his comparison to the 30 Win Mag.

Looks about 20% more than a 30-06.

This is a pretty broad question, hard to answer since it depends a lot on the rifle and how its set up

 :yeah:

I would suggest figuring out what type of setup your thinking of and finding someone with a similar magnum cartridge setup to try if your recoil sensitive. I would also recommend knowing what you want a 28 nosler to do for you before choosing a set up & spending your money. If your shooting ranges & abilities are under 400 yds then save your money or look at some other cartridges in the 28 family that have less recoil and way cheaper to shoot. :twocents:

Gonna be 20+ grains of powder over a 30-06 so recoil will be a good bit more in a like platform.  Brake can take them down considerably however.  With a brake, hearing protection is a must.  Well hearing protection should be a must at the range and in the field but that's a whole other topic  :chuckle:

It all depends how the rifle is set up. Mine has a directional brake and good pad. Kicks like a heavy barreled .243 to me. I'd happily let any woman or 12 yr old kid shoot it.

broad brush - typical loads and rifle weights -  you are at maybe 17-19lbs of recoil in 3006 and maybe 23-25 for a rem7mag, not much different for a 28 nosler i would suspect than the 7 mag. if you are a flincher, go with a brake, recoil reduction is noticeable. lots of variables in rifle config for recoil. These are just generic ranges.

I shoot a 7mm Blaser mag w/180's that is similar-ish to a 28 Nosler.  My rifle isn't particularly heavy and has a baffle type muzzle brake, I think baffle type brakes are not only more effective but quieter too, and the comparison MtnMuley made of one recoiling about like a 243 is pretty spot on and that's how I would describe mine as well. 

Even without a muzzle brake, these big 7mm's aren't that bad.  My dad used to have a 7-300WBY and I've shot a 7STW a fair amount, both are about the equivalent of a 28 Nosler, that were un-braked and weren't bad to shoot at all.

Thanks all. That helps. I think Iíll stick with the old school round like the win mag or 06 for now. My self imposed limit is 400 and I donít reload yet so Iíll keep it simple.
