I was wondering what you guys do about recoil...
I have a Reminton 700...shooting 308's

I just recently ordered a Kick eez Large Slip On pad.....
Anyone use Kick eez before?
What kind of pads do you guys use and do they work?

I use Limbsaver, The slip-on pads don't seem to work as good as the screw on ones. I use this on a Rem 870 turkey gun & am very satisfied with the Limbsaver.

Limbsaver.

FYI, Remington sells the Limbsaver under their own brand R3, I think it's called.

No other brand compares, in my experience.

I've used both Limbsavers a Kick-Eez but the fitted (or grind to fit) ones not the slip-ons. Both brands are top notch and well worth the price.

I use both and they both work very well, but I'm more partial to the Kick-Eez as it seems to reduce felt recoil a little better. I think Kick-Eez also has a fitted pad for the 700.

ye, the fitted once are for Rem. 700 ADL/BDL
I have a SPS Varmint, so I wasn't too sure if it would fit....
Plus you can buy inserts for the slip-on's to reduce felt recoil.

I've used (and still use) Kick eez, Limbsaver, and R3 (same as limbsaver just rebadged). All work well.

My Remington 700 ADL Synthetic wears a pre-fit Limbsaver pad. Doesn't get much easier than that.

I've got a Kick eez on my 11-87. I've got limbsaver on a Mossberg 835. (got both of those off Hoytinak :D).

Got an R3 on one of my 870's.

Makes range time much easier on the shoulder.......
