I'm hoping to kill two birds with one stone. I've not only ordered the LimbSaver pad but also ordered a Lead Sled Plus along with two 25# bags of shot to fit inside it. If that all doesn't tame the recoil and put some more enjoyment back into shooting this thing I don't know what will.
There is some credence to my positioning myself too low on the bench. It's been many moons since I've shot from the bench and last time was a rifle nothing like this one and I had zero bruises or knots on my shoulder. The Sharps does have a very thin butt by todays standards and it's material and shape is not shoulder friendly. I'm going to beat this thing and try to get back and enjoy it. I've never loaded 20-25 rounds for any weapon I've ever had and came back home with half of them until now. That's about to cease. I just hope the Lead Sled lives up to the hype and videos I've seen. It has to be better that what I have, however.
