Sendero recoil reduction? ??

I just picked up a new sendero 300win.
And put a trijicon 5x20x50 green mill dot on top.
The but pad dose not feel comfortable.
All my other guns I have switched out the pad to the sims vibration.
Ones and love them.
I not sure if they make one for that gun or is it a grind to fit one?

And the Mercury recoil reducer thing .???
Dose it work? Or hype.
Can I put it in the gun or is that a job for a gun Smith?


And I have no intentions of putting a break on the front.!!

Thanks .

    An effective muzzle brake not only reduces the felt recoil but also reduces the muzzle rise/fall. Being able to see target impact is priceless. Just sayin'!

    Based on the recoil test we have performed the Mercury recoil reducers do very little for ft/lbs
    of recoil. they do add about a pound of weight to the rifle (That does reduce recoil and reduces recoil velocity because of the weight) A 300 RUM we tested that weighed 8 lbs produced 15.14
    ft/lbs of recoil with the Assassin brake on it. We added one pound to the test rifle and it lowered the recoil to 13.46 (1.68 ft/lbs) the exact reduction we found in a rifle with the mercury recoil device.

    While testing muzzle brake devices we found only 1 to 2 ft/lbs of reduction (About the same as a good recoil pad).

    Not knocking the product, It is the easiest way to lower recoil and with a good recoil pad it will improve the recoil,but a 1lb slug of lead does about the same thing.

    I was also surprised with the results, but the test were conclusive as far as I was concerned.
