    Whats the best recoil pad

    I am replacing a recoil pad on a ruger #1 45/70 & I hope a 458lott. What recoil pad is the best- Kick-EEZ or Limbsaver or pachmeyer Deexcellerator?

    I like the Limbsaver, but you will probably have to shorten the stock just a bit as the Limbsaver recoil pad is a bit thicker than the stock Ruger recoil pad.

    Years ago my brother and I beat ourselves up with a Ruger No1 in .45-70 with a shotgun recoil pad. We were shooting a load on the low end of a .458 Win and a half dozen rounds were all that we could stand. Fast forward to now, we're both shooting GBL's with Decelerator pads and we shoot for hours - our loads are stout. I even added a slip-on Limbsaver to lengthen the stock a bit and it adds together with the Decelerator. This combo might be a necessity for the Lott. Just be sure to remove the slip-on after each use as leaving it on can take the finish off over time.

    I use both Kick-Eez and Limbsaver on my rifles, they are both comperable... maybe the Kick-Eez a little better IMO. I do not like the Pachmeyer brand.

    Kick-Eez are the only pads I use nothing else compares to them.

    If others say different it is because they are not shooting very heavy recoiling loads.

    I have several Limbsaver pads. A grind-to-fit Limbsaver completely tamed my plastic stocked Handy Rifle in 45-70. Also, one came on my 35 Whelen T/C Pro-hunter and it works very well. And, I have their slip-on pads I move around between a couple of single shot shotguns. I have not tried other pads because the Limbsavor has always worked for me. If it ain't broke ---!

    I use a grind to fit Limbsaver which works well. I haven't used the other pads though so I can't say how they compare.

    I like the kick eze, personally. The extra bonus is they seem to cost less than some others too. I use them on a lot of my rifles. They make my '06 feel mild, even when pushing the 168gr bullets to almost 3000. One other thing to keep in mind, especially for the Lott. My eye didn't line up high enough for the scope on my '06 so I added the padded cheek rests, double layer, in fact. Now alignment is perfect, AND when the rifle bucks up, I don't get smashed in the cheek, like I used to. Shooting my '06 now is more fun than a 243.
