Given a 9 lb sporter rifle, then add a scope a sling and a winter coat none of the subject three are producing much felt recoil. IMHO
Only problem is, were not talking about a 9lb sporter here. The Ruger American is 6.25 or 6.38 lbs depending on caliber and while I don't think the felt recoil would be that much different between a .243 and a 7mm-08 I used to own a Ruger M77RL in .270 that weighed 6lbs and that thing was uncomfortable to shoot very much. Of course I lived in Florida at the time so you were generally in a t-shirt or light jacket at best.
