I've a savage that will rattle your teeth with recoil - no fun. If I take off the pad and pour the stock full of small lead shot, would that help cut the recoil ? Any down side to that other than the extra weight to carry ? Or would a replacement stock be the only way to go ? If so, what works well & isn't to pricey for a 110? I will eventually have to get a different stock when I rebarrel to a heavier barrel but would like to get some fun out of it until then. Too many projects demanding both time & $. Ain't these problems the good kind to have.
