Thank you for starting an interesting thread.

My father developed a formula for parabolic taper in a hydraulic cylinder for constant recoil force over a distance.

I figured out that recoil pads distribute recoil over time, area, and shape:
a) Time takes a thick pad to slow the rifle down slowly.
b) Area takes a tall wide pad.
c) Shape takes a pad soft enough to comply with the shoulder shape.

Pain threshold is ~ 20 psi on the skin. We need enough recoil pad to stay below 20 psi everywhere, and we can shoot all day.

The best I can do is the largest Limbsaver grind to fit, and then I do not grind it.

The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
