Take a look at the Kickeez pads here. I think they're excellent and this particular store is run by a combat Marine.

I hate to say it but in looking at rifles Remington **GULP** was the last one I looked at.

I can get a Tikka, or Browning for the same price as a Remmy I am going with one of the other ones really.

Then again I thought about buying a savage action putting a 260 rem barrel on it and putting that into a B&C stock then top it with a Nikon Monarch Gold 30mm 2.5-10x50mm.

Tango I was in the same situation as you when I bought my 35whelen. It had the rem. hard plastic buttplate and would get sore as hell shooting 250gr hunting loads from the bench. I was going to put an aftermarket pad on but the LOP was perfect as is and I didn't want to cut the stock.
I remembered I had a simms slip-on pad on my turkey gun. I slipped it on and now there's hardly any felt recoil from the bench. When its time to go hunting I slip the pad off. Not really going to feel the recoil when shooting at game anyway.
I used the same pad on my dads m700 30-06 with the hard plastic plate the other day, Felt recoil comparable to a 7-08. Could shoot it or my whelen in a t-shirt all day long with no shoulder tenderness with the slip-on pad.
Not trying to talk you out of a new gun...we all need more of those
Maybe just a $20 solution to your problem, sounds like a fine rifle ya got!----Gate

I would never put a break on a rifle of mine. Ifn ya can't handle the recoil then you shouldn't be shooting it in the first place.
I am using a gun right now with a muzzle break on it and it makes it unbearably loud. My ears ring for 3 days.

Considered a Weatherby Vanguard/Howa? I can't say enough good about mine, although I don't think they come in .260 rem stock.

I go with sub-moa at 100 yards.

Acceptable accuray depends on what the hunter wants for himself. Some folks are Ok with putting a shot somewhere in the boiler room. Nothing wrong with that.

I expect to take the top of the heart out with my shots. I need sub MOA on my hunyting guns or they go to a new home. I spend way too much time working on my shooting to wonder where the shots are going.

BUT I do own some lever actions that I use for brush hunting that I'm Ok if they do less than that because my shots with those are short.

Enough to hit the upper neck of a 75 pound inbred/underfed south carolina whitetail at 100 yards.

Just to clarify my position. This post was about rifles, but I use a pistol for deer hunting and get 1.58moa at 100 yards with it. If I put a scope on it I might get better.

I was talking rifles too. 1.5 MOA with a handgun at 100 yards is darn respectable shooting.
