How does the angle of the recoil pad in relation to the comb of the stock effect felt recoil? I had a HS precision stock on my rifle and the felt recoil was reduced from the factory stock. I thought that the recoil pad was 90 degrees to the comb.
I traded it in for a lighter stock that does have the recoil pad (Limbsaver) 90 degrees off of the comb but the felt recoil is much higher. I also shorteded the length of pull 1/4 inch less than my measured LOP (turned out to be 12 3/4) so it would be easier to cycle when wearing hunting cloths, so the LOP is less than that of the HS precision.
So if the angle is more than 90 degrees does it deflect the muzzle up and reduce felt recoil?
