I shot my remington 78 30-06 today to sight it in and after the first 3 my shoulder looked like a punching bag.

so which recoil pad would you tell someone to get it and install it on their gun?

It is sighted in now(good shooting) so just leave it alone and kill some deer. You will not notice recoil when shooting a deer. Heck you will barely notice the sound \:\) ime.

If its causing you to flinch and anticipate the shot you need to replace it. I would suggest Limbsavers Precision Fit recoil pad. Made in the USA and will reduce the felt recoil. I had to put one on my Thomson Encore when I bought a 20" 12 gauge rifled barrel for it. It was a beast, but the recoil pad really tamed it down for me. Good Luck!

Just pick up one of the Slip On Limbsaver pads at WalMart. Roughly $20 or so. Keep in mind it will make the length of pull longer and you may have to slide your scope back to compensate, thus needing to re-zero your gun.

Or you could put your Big Girl panties on and just suck it up. Be a Man! Rub some dirt on it! \:D

To help with recoil when sighting in you might want to look into a Leadsled or some other type of rest. But keep in mind that shots fired from a leadsled don't count as trigger time. You still need to practice shooting in "hunting" positions but that can be done with a .22 or other plinking caliber.
