I believe felt recoil is increased by forcing cones. The recoil is proportional to the sum paid for forcing cone removal. For example, if you write a check for $300.00, the actual perceived recoil is probably not noticeable. However, if you decreased your weight by 300 silver dollars, that is significant. Therefore, according to Becknell's Law of Diminishing Return, if you pay for it, you will feel it in your billfold.
