No offense. But why is someone your size using a 30-06 with that skeletal stock on it

A 243 is more than enough for deer and hog, and it has very little recoil.

OK, things are coming into focus, now.

Measure from the inside end (point) of your elbow

to the curve of your trigger finger, when held as though

it were on a trigger. That's your LOP(Length Of Pull).

NOW measure from the end of the butt stock of the rifle

to to it's trigger. That's the rifles LOP.

The closer these match, the more comfortably the rifle will

shoot. IIRC, standard rifles have a LOP @ 12.5 inches.

At 13.5 inches, I'm guessing your LOP is @12 inches,

maybe less, as most rifles are designed for medium/large men.


IF your LOP is shorter than 13.5 inches, do you want to

wait to grow into it, or is it better for you to replace, or shorten the stock?

That's a pretty good reason

A 7mm-08 would have much less recoil, and is still plenty powerful for an elk.
Can yo afford a new rifle? Or at least a new stock?
That skeletal stock is punishing, find a different stock, or a different rifle.
