I've been reloading pistol's for a while, but today, I shot my first Rifle reloads. I wanted to try and test out three different powder levels for my 7mm remington magnum. I only had 18 rounds loaded (had 20 cases, but I trimmed one case way too short and I kind of forgot to fill the 19th with powder before I put all my powder stuff away) 162 grain hornady interlock BTSP over 55-57 grains of IMR 5831. Anyway, the first few rounds felt great. The 10th or 11th, I could tell I was going to be sore. By the 18th, it hurt. I had some 140 grain Winchester silvertips left over. I was going to test three of them and compare. I shot two. On that last shot, it hurt, quite a bit. . . I wasn't going to shoot that last round. I felt kind of wimpy. Anyways, I keep hearing how the 7mm remington magnum is a "light recoiling magnum." I guess I'm still new to this whole concept of rifle recoil. I've shot a 44 magnum, 357 mag, and a T/C in 45-70 and never felt like anything hurt to shoot. Anyway, my rifle couldn't shoot great groups, . . . ok so it was me not the rifle, but I'm going to get better. The trigger on my Ruger mII is a bit on the heavy side. Anything I could do about that?
