I find my .300 Win is enough recoil that I don't enjoy shooting it. Without hearing protection it is too loud for the safety of anyone nearby as well. I do not consider it a "fun shooter".
I do consider it (with 200 grain Partitions at 2950 fps) a very effective hunting rifle for elk and moose, and that is how it gets used, but I do not shoot it very much except to sight it in and hunt with it. I have other "fun shooters" that are just, well ...... more fun.
