CA357 did you do a slip on or one of those pre fit butt stock replacements?

If recoil is part of the problem, I would suggest you consider the .243 of the 7mm-08.

You left out the left handed shooter part. With that being said, I would work with the .270 you already have. It's a great hunting round. Like others have stated, try a better recoil pad and/or managed recoil cartridges. 130gr will produce less felt recoil than 150gr, but not that much.

Default Look in Brownells parts

I'd suggest getting a soft rubber recoil butt pad fitted by a gunsmith, I'd done that with a 30-06 Savage 110 with very excellent results I'd done mine myself but had help and it looks allot like the top picture but mine has a very soft, almost jelly like feel to it, it tamed the monster, another thing is getting one those kenetic recoil absorbers installed if the rubber pad isn't enuf they are inletted into the buttstock and held in place by the recoilpad.

I'd go with a good recoil pad and try some Remington "Managed Recoil" ammo. It only kicks 1/2 what conventional ammo does and will be good on deer out to 200 yards.

You may also want to consider the 7mm-08. The only downside is the ammunition is expensive compared to more common calibers like 308 or 30-06.
