My first Wby was a M70 chambered in .300 Wby.  I don't know what model it was but it may have well been a feather weight because that rifle kicked harder than any rifle I have ever fired.  I later traded that rifle off and got a MK V in .300 Wby.  What a world of difference.  About 5 years ago I saw an M 70 in .270 Wby for sale in a want ad in the Casper Star.

I think it's just the Model 70's that inherently have a sharp kick. I have a featherweight and a buddy has a super grade. Both are 30-06 and both kick sharper than any other rifle I own. I've never figured out why either.
