Elk caliber rifle (my braked .300 Win Mags and .338 Win Mag felt recoil are similar to that off .243 and .308 respectively)
effective muzzle brake (muscle, PK, DE, Holland's, etc ...)
recoil pad (limbsaver)
(Optional for extra measures)
Happy safe hunting/shooting and enjoy your time with your Dad. Good luck!
