Recoil of a firearm is based on how heavy and fast is the bullet, and how much does the firearm weigh. Change any one of the 3, and recoil will change. The AVERAGE .270 Winchester (16.5 lbs recoil) will have less recoil than a 30-06 (17.6 lbs recoil) but more than a .308 Winchester ( 15.8 lbs recoil). How recoil FEELS can be affected by several things, including shape of the stock, recoil control devices (such as pads) which spread recoil over time, etc. Good article for some more reading for you-http:/wwwzperiodzchuckhawkszperiodzcom/recoil_tablezperiodzhtm
