    Does anyone know of a stainless steel muzzle brake
    I have a M77 Mark II that after 3 shots I have the pattern of the butt stock imprinted in my shoulder for a week

    A .308 break should do pretty well at taming .30-06 recoil. You could also look into a good recoil pad.

    I don't know what kind of pad to get I took the one off that's on it now and it has a lip on it
    Because of the fiberglas stock

    So, details.

    Your weight, height, and physical condition?

    How closely does the rifle's LOP match your own?

    A 30.06 is a very respectable rifle round, one of

    my favorites, and the max I'm willing to shoot,

    but there must be something wrong here which we

    are not seeing, because a 30.06 simply doesn't

    kick that much.

    A muzzle break would no doubt help, but you'd still

    have the problem which initially drove you to get it.

    You say it has a fiberglass stock.
    Is this one of the lightweight Ruger mountain rifle types or featherweights, or weather warriors or what ever they are calling them?

    That light weight makes them a pleasure to carry in teh woods, but they can indeed be a bit more punishing to shoot. But as Therewolf said, the .30-06 doesn't havve a reputation as being a horrible round in the recoil department.

    No offense. But why is someone your size using a 30-06 with that skeletal stock on it

    A 243 is more than enough for deer and hog, and it has very little recoil.

    OK, things are coming into focus, now.

    Measure from the inside end (point) of your elbow

    to the curve of your trigger finger, when held as though

    it were on a trigger. That's your LOP(Length Of Pull).

    NOW measure from the end of the butt stock of the rifle

    to to it's trigger. That's the rifles LOP.

    The closer these match, the more comfortably the rifle will

    shoot. IIRC, standard rifles have a LOP @ 12.5 inches.

    At 13.5 inches, I'm guessing your LOP is @12 inches,

    maybe less, as most rifles are designed for medium/large men.


    IF your LOP is shorter than 13.5 inches, do you want to

    wait to grow into it, or is it better for you to replace, or shorten the stock?

    That's a pretty good reason :D

    A 7mm-08 would have much less recoil, and is still plenty powerful for an elk.
    Can yo afford a new rifle? Or at least a new stock?
    That skeletal stock is punishing, find a different stock, or a different rifle.
