I bought a Weatherly Vanguard 7mm rem mag, Walmart had it on clearence. Do any of y'all have experience with this brand, and model of rifle, in 7mm rem mag. I want to buy a scope, and I want to magna port the barrel, and put a Sims Limbsaver recoil pad, to further reduce the recoil.
I'm disabled due to a work related left knee injury, and I also have a lot of left shoulder pain, due to work injuries, my rt shoulder is in good enough shape to handle the full recoil of this rifle, but
i couldn't shoot a box of cartridges through it and expect it to hold up.
The main thing I must have to be able to continue hunting, is a quality tripod mounted rifle rest, that can hold the rifle for me, due to shoulders, but mostly due to Tremmors,in my hands, and lower arms.(you wouldn't want to hold a apple on your head, if I was aiming a rifle at you, and neither would the wildlife. lol)
I'm trying to adapt a large caliber rifle, to fit my needs. So If any of you know why I should, or shouldn't make these adaptations to this rifle please tell me. And if any of you have Tremmors, and have had to use a tripod, or a rifle rest, mounted on a tripod, please tell me of your modifications.
Sorry for so many questions, but I don't have long till turkey season starts, and I'll need a rifle rest before then to target practice.

Randy,
I once had tremors and a bum shoulder. The tremors were due to the medicine to treat the bum shoulder. The only thing I could do to help myself is shoot a lower recoiling rifle. For a time I shot .22LR. A bipod is a good idea but you will still have recoil to the shoulder that attaches to the hand that pulls the trigger. I hate to admit but the .22LR that I rested on a folding table and laid onto rolled-up sheets was total agony and intense pain. I wallored through it and I'm sure you will too. My best advice is to lay off the shooting/hunting and rest-up ;\)

I have been resting up, I was disabled 3/01/2007, I can handle the recoil of the 7mm rem mag, I just perfer to magna port the barrel, and change out the recoil pad, in an effort to lower the recoil of the rifle. the tremmors that I have don,t come from taking medicine, I have to take medicine for parkinsons, to lesson the effects of the famialial tremmors I have. My grandfather had it, my mom, my sister, several of my uncles, and cousins, and lastly me. my meds. keep it under control, for the most part. I don't have the fine motor controls of my fingers, and the longer I hold a rifle up the more I can't, keep the rifle sights, or scope on the target, it's very frustrating sometimes. I've also been playing guitar since I was 8 yr old, and there's been many times before I got on the meds., that I thought I would have to quit playing, but that wasn't in God's will for my life. I just have to take the meds and, continue the things to do, as long as I can.
