Here is a pic of a dozen rifle butts.
10 of them have large unground grind to fit Limbsaver recoil pads.

The pads are 2" wide, 5.5" high, and average 1" thick.

There are four 7mmRemMag rifles in the pic, three 300 Win mag rifle, one 338 Win mag rifle, and others.

The way to keep the pressure on the skin below the threshold of pain is to distribute the recoil impulse over time and area with compliance to fit the shoulder shape. This pad does that.

Not grinding down the pad [for looks] results in more area [no pain].

I have shot a number of deer with the 7mmRM, and I was prone with the Limbsaver on the top of my bony shoulder.

I have never felt any recoil pain from 7mmRM, 300WM, or 338WM with the unground limbsaver.

And I build some light rifles, and I handload hot.

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?
