I respectfully disagree. This is bad juju, don't do it. 100 pounds of counterweight is way too much, you want to reduce the recoil to a manageable level not eliminate it. I shoot my .300WM and .338Wm during load development and on most instances, I can get by with 10-15 pound weights ... sometimes no weights. The bottom-line, something has to give ... the weakest point (i.e., stock, etc).
As far as developing good shooting technique, I find it difficult since I cannot get a good consistent check weld and LOP. After I am satisfied with my load, I switch to the bags.
Just my thoughts for your consideration. Happy safe shooting/hunting.
