Replacing recoil pad on A-Bolt Stalker

Hello All,

Quick question. I've purchased a Limb Saver recoil pad for my Browning A-Bolt .270. As I shoot once a week, I'm finding it difficult to eat cereal in the morning due to the weekly beating.

The pad should arrive today. Will the screws that hold the original recoil pad on the stock be flat head or phillips?

That's it. Throwing a softball question. I'll try to come up with something more challenging in the future

limb saver

Sir;
You certainly made a good choice for a pad! Some of the limb-saver pads are made to fit your particular gun. If not be careful fitting it - but you'll be very pleased with it.

limb saver

Sir;
I've got a decelerator on my 416 Taylor and a limb saver on my 9.3X64 and the limb saver is far nicer!

Harry I do not think any sportsman needs a dangerous sniper rifle able to kill at the distance your rifle can. What about the children.
