Re: Gun Rest Question
What are you comfortable/able to shoot? Also, are you having range of motion issues that impair movement, basically, what type restriction do you have?
There are several ideas that can apply to reducing actual recoil and/or perceived recoil ranging from muzzle brakes to rifle fit. Shooting from a fixed "sled" is one way, but the change in harmonics and the additional stress on the stock are the negatives to this solution.
What rifles beyond the 7 mag are you looking to shoot in this manner, is this a "fix" for multiple guns? What rifle is the 7mag, what weight ect....
Quite often I shoot from the bench using a old doctors bag to support the rifle in a "v" that lets me pay attention to the sights and less attention to supporting the gun and my stance/position. From this position the fit of the rifle changes slightly and the length of pull seems different which can make the rifle either more of less comfortable depending on the gun.
