Ain't that the truth, my 7mm Mag has been collecting dust for years. The last time I shot it from the prone position I said to myself "this sucker kills in front and cripples behind". I left that session with a hand sized bruise on my shoulder and I said never again.

A semi auto does a lot to mitigate recoil. I've been thinking hard about a BAR in .308. My bolt rifle in .308 doesn't really kick that hard, but it is really heavy.

a good pad (pachmeyer decelerator or a SVL) will cut felt recoil 50%, take note though the SVL pads react to the carpet in gun safes, so ya gotta shave them occasionally. a break will make recoil negligible but its loud!

That's a good point. Might be worth getting a box and shooting to see. If he could keep using his same rifle, with less recoil, it might make him happy.

My grandfather always said "getting old isn't for the weak"

How about a break on the Winnie? My dad got a muzzle break on his 7mm Rem Mag. He is 87 and still shoots it. He got a nice buck last year.
