Just thought I'd let everyone know in case anyone was interested. I put one of the precision fit Limbsaver pads on my Tikka T3 Lite 7mm Rem Mag and it definitely reduced recoil. However, after shooting my buddies Win Model 70 in 338 Win Mag after he installed his precision fit pad I have to say I am IMPRESSED! It definitely reduced a lot of felt recoil. We had been shooting clay pigeons with our 12 gauges with light 2 3/4'' loads and the 338 didn't feel like it kicked any harder than the shotguns did. If you have a problem with your factory pad being too hard, go get a limbsaver.
