I have a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight chambered in .270 Winchester. The gun fits me well and shoots great and is one deer killin mamma jamma. The recoil on the other hand is.......horrible. The gun came with a hard rubber butt plate and only weighs about six and a half pounds. I recently had a GraCoil put on my Beretta 686 shotgun to tame some of the recoil from that thing down. Prior to getting the GraCoil reducer I had a DeadMule recoil reducer in the stock. Of course putting the GraCoil on meant that the DeadMule had to go.....so: I decided to put it in my shoulder abusing .270 and while I was at it I had my gunsmith put on a KickEez recoil pad. Made a BIG difference. Just curious what any of you do for recoil reduction in your toys.
