In my area of central NY we are restricted to hunting deer with either a shotgun or pistol during firearm season, no rifles are allowed. I hate hunting deer with a shotgun, so I am looking at a pistol. My two choices are the T/C Encore or the Savage Striker. I am seriously considering the Savage Striker 516 in one of the 3 following calibers; 243WIN, 7mm-08REM, and 300WSM. I have a Browning ABoltII in 300WSM; great gun, awesome caliber, recoil not a problem. I am concerned about recoil in a 6 pound pistol. I shoot a Glock27 without having a problem with recoil, I have shot a T/C Encore in 35 Remington without having a problem with recoil. Does anyone have any experience with the Savage Striker 516 in any of the above calibers? All input will be appreciated.
