.30-06 recoil is just not that heavy. Every American soldier in WWI and WWII trained with and shot it. It's a sporting round now and NOT a punisher. No need for limb saver, PAST, padding stuffed inside your shirt, sandbag between gun and shoulder, reduced loads or any such silliness, especially for someone 70" and 180 lbs. Tuck the rifle firmly into your shoulder and fire away. You don't even need to man up. My 10 YO grandson shoots .30-06. He's hardly a man. People need to stop thinking .30-06 recoil is anything tough to deal with. Its just not.
Its all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.
