A fellow hunter/reloader always talks about loading his down so that the recoil is on par with a .30-06??????? Why not shoot the .30-06 if you're gonna do that?
Maybe he only has a 300 Win MAg, but only needs .30-06 power at that particular time.
I've loaded my 300 weatherby mag all the way down to powder puff lead bullet loads that my 8 year old granddaughter likes to shoot.
Kind of like having the car that's capable of 180 MPH. Doesn't mean that you have to drive it that fast ALL of the time.
