In my mind it is too steep, I am thinking of an AI with a 35 degree shoulder, thus my question. Does the 40 degre shoulder give you any problems?
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

My rifle is a single shot so the shoulder does not hinder feeding for me and there is no problems when setting the shoulder back.

As far as brass life I have not had any failures yet but I only have 4 firings on 50 pieces.
