The numbers you show for your 450 are pretty close to being accurate.

I can't say about YOUR 30-06 and the loads you use, but my relatively light 30-06 with 180 gr loads is closer to 20 ft lbs, not 7.

An 8.5 lb 338 Lapua is going to be in the 45 ft lb recoil range.

Even a 243 has much more recoil than the 7 ft lbs you show for 30-06.

But all of the modern high tech recoil pads really do work well.
