My wife is getting older and it now hurts her shoulder when she shoots her 30/06. It's her favorite rifle, had it for 38 years and she won't even try my 270 or any other gun. Would having a break put on her gun reduce the recoil to the point that she would notice it, or is it just a little bit? No sense in spending the money if noticeable reduction in recoil is on slight. And I have just learned of "lite loads," by Remington. has anyone used them?

Just buy some Remington Managed Recoil loads for the '06. These fire a 125 grain bullet at 2600 fps and will do the trick for her.

Oops, I posted before reading all the way to the end of your post. Yes, I've used them in the .300 Win Mag and they do the trick and are just as accurate as the regular ammo.

Short answer is yes. I just put a jec break on my 243 and can really tell the difference. There Is almost no recoil now. Well worth it IMHO.

With the Lite Loads and a good muzzle Break it would be amazingly less recoil. The Low recoil loads work very well from what friends tell me.

All most all her shots are under 200 yards, most being 100. So the ammunition would not have to reach out to far to find it's target. Thanks for the suggestion on the managed recoil Remington.

You may have to order the Managed Recoil loads off the Web, I'm not sure if places like Academy stock them or not. If she tries them, post back here and let us know what she thinks.

Both Remington and Hornady make reduced recoil loads. Bass Pro has the Remington a lot of the time. Cabela's has the Hornady

Reduced recoil loads help a lot. The break also helps significantly. Downfall is it gets super loud. Not that most guns are quiet but the sounds can be pretty bad. I had a break on a 300 win mag and it was about like shooting a 243.

I've shared my home with four women--3 daughters and a wife--for nigh on to 40 years. They are not happy unless they can complain.

If you put a brake on the rifle, she will shift her wrath from the kick to the noise. So you put a decelerator pad on the stock; now she will complain about the stock being too long or the pad hanging up on her jacket when she shoulders the rifle.

So this is what you do: Give her $250 bucks and encourage her to go shopping at her favorite store and buy whatever she likes. While she's buying a new purse or shoes, you go to Academy and buy a box of reduced-recoil loads. If you handload, buy a box of 130 gr Hornadys and go to the handbook and load up some low-velocity starting loads. Let her wear your PAST recoil pad while in the blind. While you're out at the deer lease, take her to dinner at the Ft Griffin Ice House.

And you haven't ruined the rifle with a brake or a big recoil pad. Problem solved.

And 60% louder for the trade off, at least that has been the experience with my MB, so prepare for that.

just as everyone has said, MB do work! A good one will reduce the recoil a ton and make it fun to shoot again! But you will need to wear hearing protection while hunting but then the older I get the more I think I need to do this anyway. As for reduced rounds I can't answer that because I don't know much about them. I do know that the MB has allowed me to shoot a long range rifle and the recoil is like a .22. And I can shoot it all day long!
