According to Kelley, a one-percent asymmetry in the supernova explosion would result in a recoil velocity of about 1,000 kilometers per second.
This effect makes it very difficult to cool atoms to a temperature below that corresponding to the recoil velocity of a single photon.
This delay, combined with the inertia of the heavy bolt, contributes to slowing down the recoil velocity of the rifle, and we feel less recoil.
I ran the numbers on a recoil calculator and found they were indeed very similar; depending on the load both have around 16 or 17 fps recoil velocity and 36 to 38 ft.
To compute recoil energy, square recoil velocity, multiply the result by gun weight in pounds, and divide the product by 64.
Actually I pay more attention to recoil velocity than recoil energy.
While gun recoil energy is high, gun recoil velocity is not.
