Went to the range to sight in a rifle yesterday.
Got some shoulder issues,so recoil has been rather painful on my shoulder.
Had some ideas I tested out and it seems to work as I felt no pain.
Just had to write it here as I’m rather elated.
Need to test again just to make sure,probably going tomorrow.

Perhaps you could elaborate on what ideas you tried out that worked as perhaps others could find the info useful.

Lower bench,moving buttpad around until I found a spot that didn’t hurt and lastly,trigger side elbow pointing down.
Hardly Einstein level stuff,but I guess I’m slow.
I think the elbow thing helped the most,since it leaves more flesh behind the buttpad.
Changed my mind,going to the range today.

Guess I can’t write,the bench(not the normal one)is a tad lower,but the chair is a lot lower so I sit it straighter.

With heavy recoilers from a bench I find them manageable if I make sure that I use a high rest so that the recoil just rocks me back and doesn't just pound my shoulder. If I do that even with my 416RM 20 rounds at a sitting are not punishing.

NTH, Just found your message. I hunt with Eland Pro Safaris in Namibia. Wide selection of game and great folks. Hell my PH and his family ARE adopted family, LOL! I book people to hunt with them and should you be interested I'd be happy to meet and discuss a trip. Anyway all the best to you and give me a shout sometime. Bye for now.

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
