Okay, I am purchasing a Tikka T3 7mm mag and will be using my Meopta Meopro 4-12x50 for the optics.  7mm mag kicks a little bit.  Been reading up on the Limb Saver and I have never seen one.  The reviews for the most part are positive, however I keep reading that you have to 'grind the pad to fit'.  So trying to get anyone's comments, experiences, et cetera.  Also, do you really have to alter the pad to fit.  Any other alternatives out there.  Much thanks

I have one installed on my Model 700 Sendero in .300 win mag and I love it. I can shoot it all day now with it installed. I also had it professionally installed, but you can install in yourself. BigDaddy would be one of many guys on here that could mentor you how to.

Limbsaver pads are very good. Another option is the Kick-eze pads. The grind-to-fit pads just take a bit of time, trial fitting and patience. Once done, they help a lot. The last one I did was a Kick-eze and I thought it actually worked out better than the Limbsavers.

I have a Limbsaver mounted on a 30-06 Tikka T3. I bought it at Cabelas and it slipped right on the stock and fits perfect.
There might be several kinds but the one i got is not nessasary to drill, screw, or grind to fit.

I've also had good luck with both pads mentioned above.  Many of these  are offered as direct replacement pads, which require no grinding.

 +1 They are many good pads that do fit. Alot of them do need to be fitted to the rifle. I like to fit all mine for the reason of the smoothness from stock to pad. I know the ones that are bought to fit the factory replacemnts are usually off just a tad here or there. nothing major but I know its there.

limbsaver sells pads that are pre-made to fit tikka t3's... you remove 2 screws holding the original pad on, then replace with the new one.  you can use the original screws or the ones that come with the limbsaver.

They do seem to work at reducing recoil very well but I like a Pachmyr pad better.

Thanks for all the feedback guys.  I actually found the one I need on Limbsavers's website.  It even has a template to lay out on the bottom of the stock to ensure it fits.

Limbsaver makes pad just for T3. It fits like factory pad on the T3 .300 wsm. Same pad I use for my new sako A7 after I sold my T3.
