I have 2 416 Rigby’s the Ruger RSM kicks about 3/4 of what my 470 NE Merkel does, the CZ 550 about 1/2 of what my 470 does. My CZ 375 H&H a little less then my CZ 416, and my CZ 9.3x62 a bit less then my 375.
From your experience in general, How would you grade from 0 to 10 and giving 10 to 470, the recoil of:

Interesting subject as always.One factor that I think is over looked is stock material. Now this is a relative new thing so to speak. The crappy plastic stock on my Rem700 375H&H reduces the felt recoil quite a bit. So much so that it kicks way less then the CZ550 I had in 375H&H although it is 2 pound lighter.
