FWIW... YMMV.... all that....

I shot a 140 grain Winchester Ballistic Silvertip from a Ruger American Rifle 7mm-08, then immediately fired a 143 Grain ELD Hornady from a Ruger American Rifle 6.5 CM. Honestly, I don't completely understand why, but the recoil from the 6.5 CM was considerably more than from the 7mm-08. So, to me, given that the 7mm-08, a lighter rifle, recoils less than my .308 M77, a heavier rifle, I would assert that the 6.5 CM is fairly close to the .308.

But I would also guess that a 6.5 shooting 120 grain bullets would be noticeably lighter.
