If you want something to take the sting out when shooting at the bench you might consider one of these: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1002530831?pid=680235

I actually bought one years ago for my wife to use with turkey loads in her 20 gauge. I occasionally use it when sighting in or shooting off the bench. Works really good, in my opinion it's better than a slip on recoil pad - takes the sting out and doesn't add much to length of pull. Can even be worn when hunting if desired.

They do make a couple models that are thicker for use with REALLY heavy kickers, but this one works fine for me.

Thanks Spruce; if I b need more protection, I may go that way, but I don't forsee any grevious problems.

I've had a Winchester 94 3030 since dad bought it new for me in 1958.
Couple a years ago I gave that rifle to my oldest boy.
After moping around for about a month without a 3030 since I was 8 years old, I went and bought me a new 336.
With a red dot sight on it, I can hit 1 gallon jugs at 175 yards every time.
I actually like the Marlin better than my old Winchester.

Yes; the good, old 30/30 has been a game "go getter" for over a century, while other rounds have come and gone..

Yes, still micro-groove. Remington has figured out their quality issues and builds good Marlins.

Were it me IG, Id be looking at the 20 octagon barreled cowboy 30-30. Ballard rifling, great balance, accurate.

Ive gotten back into the 30-30s since I moved back to my home state of Florida. I have three, all older marlins.

Well; I zeroed my Ruger 450 Bushmaster, just yesterday. The kick was shotgun slug level, somewhere between 12 & 20 in n H&R single.

I wouldn't want to shoot it all day, every day, but it is not too bad..more a push, than a slam...if you know what I mean.

If I decide I want to lighten the kick, I can at any time,choose to put a plastic bag in the butt stock, fill it with BBs..and seal it together with clear calk
