    Recoil Pad size?

    I have a HighTech Specialties stock that needs a recoil pad. I've decided to get a Pachmayr Decelerator but I don't know what size I need.

    Thanks

    And you expect us to know which size an invisible stock will require?

    I'd suggest emailing High Tech, personally.

    My McMillan edge stock on my 7mm08 uses a 1/2" thick decellerator - It has a little give but not great. I'd use a 1" thick one or better still use a Limbsaver!

    I was planning on getting a 1". Should be nice and soft to protect my girly shoulders from the .260's massive recoil.

    Are Limbsavers any better? Might try Richard.

    Thanks

    I have used them on two rifles now and reccomended them to a .270wsm owner and a 7mm mag owner... In all cases we were very pleased with the difference they made...
