Limbsaver Recoil Pad Question

First post here just looking to get some help. I've decided after shooting 10 shots yesterday out of my Sako AIII 7mm RM and wking up today with a nice cherry on my shoulder that i should probably look into getting a new Recoil Pad. I've noticed that Limbsaver is probably the way to go and really like the one that came with my TC triumph. My question is which one do i get? What size will fit it or will it have to be specially ground down? If so can i do this?

Re: Limbsaver Recoil Pad Question

1. Read the back of the packaging box, and it will tell you ''fits model-70 win wood stock'' or rem 700 synthetic stock......etc..........
2. As far as the instal goes, its a cakewalk! even if you buy grind to fit on the off chance your stock has been modified. 2 screws and your done. or 2 screws and some sand paper if you buy grind to fit.
Just place a layer of masking tape around your stock(you dont want ink marks on your stock) after removing factory recoil pad, place Limbsaver on and use a permanent marker to trace stock shape. Sand pad to fit, remove masking tape with ink marks, install pad. DONE! And you have an absolutely enjoyable firearm to shoot. Limbsavers work wonders!

I bet if you used a 'hard hold', pulling the rifle into your shoulder pocket firmly, the pain would be much less noticeable and no bruising would occur.

Try this: Bugholes from Bipod

Did wonders for me. Takes some time to perfect and get the hang of. I shoot a 300 RUM unbraked spitting 210 Bergers at 3K fps and can literally now shoot the thing comfortably all day long and with much greater accuracy. Just my experience. Not sure it this applies to you, but thought I'd throw it out there.

Re: Limbsaver Recoil Pad Question

I agree with winmag and jmden.

But as they say......but here's what I did as part of the process of setting up an 8 lb rifle in 338 Win Mag.

I got the grind to fit Limbsaver.

When I ground it to fit I was careful not to touch the butt end of it. Thus its extra wide at the back and tapered properly mate with the stock.

Though I consider the Limbsaver pads the best of the bunch. Spreading the recoil over the larger area felt so good I kept the pad that way when I rebarrelled to 338 RUM, added a brake and swapped to a tupperware stock and shoot 300 SMKs, prone.

I put a limbsaver on my kid's guns. A good trick to shape the grind to fit is throw it in the freezer. I found it much easier to shape when frozen hard.
