Q: I have just had shoulder surgery and need to kill the kick on my .300 Winchester Magnum. What do you recommend? -Ed Canino, via e-mail

A: Try any or all of the following: Have your gunsmith install a premium recoil pad like the Pachmayr Decelerator; have a muzzle brake installed; try Remington's new Managed Recoil .300 Win. Mag. ammo, which will bring the kick down to the .30/06 level.
