I put a Pachmyr Triple Magnum(990 I think)on my Savage 300 WM and it made a world of difference, went from being able to shoot around 20 rounds at a session to over 50. Next to the aftermarket trigger it's the best thing I did to this gun.

Re: Recoil Pads

Try the limbsavers. The one they make for Remington is great. It called the R3 on Rem rifles.

Re: Recoil Pads

Limbsaver lists all the prefit ones on their website. If they don't make one for your rifle. You can buy the Grind to fit model and put it on yourself with a belt sander or have a smith do it..

Re: Recoil Pads

I have a savage .300 win, it used to kick like a mule. I bought a Stockade Stock, from Kevin in Nebraska. It has a Limbsaver recoil pad on it. It is by far the best $$$ I have ever spent on a rifle. He makes the stocks to your desired LOP, I also got a mercury reducer in mine. It is like shooting a .270. I have his address somewhere but they are sold at Lock Sock and Barrel, if you call they will give you his phone number.

Re: Recoil Pads

I think that i will buy a stock. However how do you know if its going to fit my rifle?
Here is what I've found "Bell and Carlson Carbelite Classic Stock Savage 110 Series Long Action Blind Magazine Composite"
now is the 110Series going to work for 116. Additionaly blind magazine part does that mean internal or...? Confused someone please explain [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Thanks
