I don't need recoil reduction for my M1A since virtually all my shooting is 200yds or less and the loads are appropriately light. The no-slip aspect of the heavy rubber pads is the big plus. Good Shooting. ..

That is a very valid point Ceresco. If you are shooting lighter loads, recoil most likely is not a major issue and we all know great light loads can be handloaded for M1 & M1A rifles that will do great accuracy for CMP matches. The slipping of metal butt plate doesn't go away unless one does something about it. One might have to live with that for CMP matches per the rules.

I am shooting heavy 175 gr & 178 gr hand loads from 1000 yds line, so recoil is a factor for the kind of shooting I do with my M1A. The OP doesn't have to shoot heavy loads and thats a option for him
