Taking up the slack or pre-compressing this tissue helps to reduce the feeling that the rifle is slamming into your shoulder.
Got that right. This is my son-in-law shooting my elephant gun. Hear me tell him, "Pull it into your shoulder". Watch him NOT do it. Notice how shots 2 and 3 did not kick him anywhere NEAR as hard as #1 did. He pulled it in on those two.
