Recoil Pad Recommendation
Several years back I received a couple of rifles that had belonged to my grandfather. I used one of them quite successfully last year - 6mm Remington/.244. The other one - Remington Model 81 in .300 Savage - I'd only fired a couple of times out in the back yard, but had never seriously considered using it for hunting - until this year.
To make a long story short, I finally took it out to the range on Saturday to get it zeroed. Boy was I surprised at the recoil for such a "short" round. It took me almost a dozen rounds to walk the rounds to zero and by that time the shoulder was quite tender. When moving over to the 100 yrd range, I could hit the target, but nothing with any sense of accuracy since I was sub-consciously flinching as I pulled the trigger. Maybe if I had a good recoil pad I wouldn't do that.
Can anyone recommend a good recoil pad for this rifle?
