It's more the light weight of the rifle and stock angle. I don't have recoil pads on other high power rifles, they are only thin rubber. These reduce felt recoil some, but not much.

I have a recoil pad on my Marlin '94. It reduces the recoil of the .44

Mag to an acceptable level.

What I do is use the sling. It's heavy, and as I shoot from the shoulder,

I hook my left elbow through it and push hard. It helps to steady aim,

and control recoil to stay on target. IME, .44 and 30.06 are @

the recoil of a 20 gauge with small game loads.

eaglesix, i forgot about those too. from a ballistics standpoint a 30-30 or even a 44 mag doesn't have the muzzle velocity or energy of say a 30-06, but seem to kick the shoulder more in a gun like a lever action winchester!
