And it is a fantastic rifle.
If you can't buy a new stock any time soon a good thick rubber but pad is your best bet.
The muzzle break will also help.

A 243 is more than enough for deer and hog, and it has very little recoil.
And because it's Perdy

Have a 77 in O6 w/synthetic stock. It is a pleasure to shoot but you have to hold it tight against the shoulder. That way you only get a push instead of a kick. It is not a rifle to stay on the range all day with. About 10-12 rounds and I am ready to find a 22 rim fire--lol. All my hunting rifles are zeroed at 220 yds. makes it mighty easy to "Kentucky windage" from there on most shots. Dropped one last year at 385 yds with that 77. Glad your "gramps" gave you a fine shooter. Enjoy!

Unless you have extremely long arms, you measured your

LOP wrong.

Measure from where your elbow makes a crook in your

arm, not the outside. Your number should be closer to

11.5 ".

Here is a brief bit on LOP- http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f18/how-measure-your-length-pull-5551/

I have a couple of .308s that WILL put marks on you- both are light sporters with rather punishing stocks (one weighs 6.5 lbs) A GOOD recoil pad can tame that- PROBLEM- recoil pad adds length to stock- if you are already maxed on LOP, adding length does not work well.

Just my opinion- the best recoil pad is made by Limb Saver. If you have a synthetic stock. you may need a slipon type. Claimed to reduce recoil by 70%. Check their website.

Muzzle brake- There are several- and Ruger DOES offer them on some rifles. Contact Ruger Customer service thru their website. The MB needs to be fitted to the rifle, typically muzzle threaded- might be one you can send back to Ruger for the work.

There are also a variety of loads for the 30-06. You might look at a lighter load for less punishment.

You are a lucky young man (woman?) to have such a grandpa. He really likes you.
What I would suggest is a Limbsaver brand slip on recoil pad. They are worth every penny, we put one on my wife's shotgun and it did wonders. It cost about $34. Yes, there are other brands that are cheaper, but you get what you pay for.
Something to keep in mind - a muzzle brake works by re-directing some of the burning gasses to the sides of the barrel instead of straight out the front. This makes the rifle seem to be much much louder. Also, if you use a prone position (laying flat on the ground) this re-directed muzzle blast will stir up dirt and debris.

Get a limbsaver recoil pad form walmart for $20 and that should tame your gun down a bit I got one on one of my 30-06s and it feel like a 308 and your LOP dose matter on how the gun kick but you will grow in to it
