When comparing recoil effects to shooter with a one given cartridge to another, it is only realistic when both cartridges are fired in identical rifles in shape and weight distribution.

Otherwise, the rifle whose recoil (bore)`axis is much higher above the rifle's center of mass (COM) will have more recoil discomfort to the shooter than closer to COM with a straighter stock with the same cartridge. Its bore and stock axis will rise to a higher angle from recoil. Stock comb and cheek piece, too, will rise more.
