LOP is the distance from the inside bend of your elbow to the position of the tip of your index finger when pulling the trigger. average for a 5' 10" person would be around 12-14"

Until you stop growing(?) it seems almost a shame to consider modifying

the stock. In a season or two, it will most likely match your LOP,

and shooting will be much more comfy.

Or you could get a wood Ruger stock, and cut it to the proper

LOP...

Dude, you are going to have to learn to deal with recoil. It hurts when you are growing up. If you get a stock that fits you this season. Next season you will need a new stock. Your shoulder will toughen up to the point that you enjoy recoil. I promise you all these things will happen. When you are looking at a trophy elk (or any elk)your adrenaline will be flowing so fast the scope could split your eyebrow and you won't feel it. I promise you all this is true. I am not one to lie.

Being that you are young,I'd suggest getting some Reduced Recoil ammunition for your 30/06 if putting a better recoil pad like a Limbsaver would make the stock LOP too long for your body.
You could also just get another stock for it.A Laminate stock,like a Boyd's will bolt right on,and be heavier than the factory stock.That will greatly reduce the recoil to your shoulder.

I would make a muzzle brake a last resort.Shooting a rifle with a muzzle brake requires good hearing protection being worn at all times if you want to be able to hear for the rest of your life.
