I put a Pachmar recoil pad on my 1895G and am quite satisfied with the reduction in felt recoil. However I could not find one for my A Bolt 300WSM so I put on a Limbsaver pad. I went to the range with it on for the first time, shot a box of homerolls wearing a T shirt and am amazed at how well it reduces felt recoil. Once the scope just touched my eye so I had to remind myself to hold on. I do like Pachmar but would highly recommend Limbsaver recoil pads.
