    I recently purchased a new rifle. I have always known that Savage puts all the money you spend on them into everything but the stock and i most definetly can feel it on this one. I Purchased a 300 win Savage 116. I gonna need to kill some recoil on /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif. I am looking at a recoil pads and am ready for suggestions. Or any other ideas?

    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.

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

    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..

    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.

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    Thanks

    Blind mag means internal, with no floorplate or detachable mag. As long as your 116 doesnt have a detachable mag it will work.

    The 3 digit models of Savage denotes long action and the 2 digit denotes short action. 110,112,116 are the same and like for the 10, 12, etc. I have had a limbsaver for about 2 yrs. now and I think it is the best I have ever used. Good luck.

    The stock from Kevin can be seen in the Lock Stock and Barrel catalogue. They have many variations, colors weights and styles. He talked to me on the phone and it seems he can do anything you essentially want, add weight, LOP, recoil pads. I think he specializes in Savage's.I can E mail his phone # if you like. Great stock.

    I have wore out the recoil pad on my 870 3.5" pump. Just replaced it with an R3 . . . WOW! Other companies make the same pads for different make guns. For about $40, may be the best add-on for the money to help your shooting. I like the heavy recoil, but it sure is a lot more pleasant to shoot 150 3.5" mags with a R3 pad!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Kick-ez and limbsavers are the best IMHO then the decelerator by pachmayr in that order
