That's what I'm looking forward to, Kraig. After all the mods to my SPS 20" .308, it weighs somewhere around 15 lbs. That additional mass has made recoil pretty much a non-issue, but that little bit of muzzle flip is driving me crazy. I'm hoping that I too, will be able to stay on target after breaking my shots.
The noise? Well... I don't guess I care so much. Most of the time I'm on the range, I'm by myself. I've sat three benches down from guys shooting 300 win mags and other calibers that would hit me in the side of the face with concussion; If I can sit through theirs and still shoot accurately, I guess they'll be able to sit through mine. Or try harder
