Recoil

Here is a link to it on remingtons website. I don't like the sound of it personally the way it sounds, it is only effective up to about 200 yds. For some this would be ok I guess but not for me I have to have something to perform at 200+. The two biggest deer I have shot were about 300 yds. But I bet it would be ideal for some.

Use a butt pad on the gun. I wouldnt worry about it to much. Adrenaline will take most of the pain away.

Recoil solution

Generally, you don't need a recoil pad while hunting as you'll only shoot once or twice, while wearing warm clothing, and from a position that allows your body to roll with the punch. As for the shooting bench, a very easy solution is to place a five-pound canvass bag of shot between your shoulder and the rifle. It can really take the sting out of bench rest shooting.

Recoil

Short of changing rifles, I'd say the easiest way to make a big difference is to put on a different recoil pad. IMO Limbsaver recoil pads are AWESOME. They do a great job of turning the punch into a shove.
