    I like the 1" thick packmeyer old english decellerator

    They are a bit heavy, but it's a classy looking pad.

    That said, I use a PAST magnum recoil pad on my shoulder when bench shooting, so the recoil pad is somewhat redundant. I can tollerate much stiffer pads in the field.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

      I also use the Pacmeyer Decellerator pad on my 7mm rem mag and 375 H&H, they are effective.

        How about limbsaver anyone know if they are good?

          The limbsavers seem very soft and they take the sting out of a heavy recoil...
          But they also seem very sticky-rubbery. They tend to hang up on your jacket during a fast shouldering. And I wonder how they would hold up if you tend to beat the heck out of your rifle butt while out in the sticks...
