    Since you're asking about the same rifle "in this gun" it would be relatively easy to estimate apples to apples. A 30-06 shooting 220gr at ~2400 = 2800 lbft. 9.3x62 shooting a 286gr at 2400 = ~3650. = ~130% increase at the muzzle.
    However you want to translate that to felt recoil but it might be enough to wake you up if recoil sensitive. Those are both max loads from Hodgdon.
