Soft?
Softer recoil than my .30-30
Not so soft sounding. The LR sounds off like a cannon.

I ordered the optic of choice, the 2.5 - 8 x 36 from Midway USA, though not the least expensive vendor one of the most reliable with honorable mention to Brownell's.

Haven't shot the Long Ranger yet, but I hear it's a soft shooting rifle. Would you agree?

Here's my Henry Long Ranger in 308 Winchester with a Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40mm. I'm gonna take her out next weekend and sight her in.

The only fair fight you will be in is the one you lose.
Tactics? That's a fancy way of saying we don't plan on fighting fair.
