RE: RECOIL PADS
If you wany one just to use off the bench, Check out the Shooters Friend recoil pad. It works like you can't believe until you try it. I got mine at Cabelas for working up heavy 45-70 loads. Just type in Shooters Friend recoil pad at their site. It will fit almost any rifle. If you try one give us a report on it. I have recommended it to many but have never heard any feed back.
Freedom. Use it or loose it.
