    Has anyone ever used a Gracoil or something similar on a high power rifle? Results? Good, bad, indifferent? I'm thinking of a lightweight Winchester post '64 model 70.

    I have seen a countercoil on a couple of high power rifles and it was very effective- I think the hydraulic action would work with anything-

    Same with a RAD

    Wireguy.....if you go to the website above, you can see pictures of one of my black powder-coated Bump-Busters on my 375 H&H Browning A-bolt. I did 2 last week for a young lady from East Texas who is on her way to Africa in hopes of snagging this year's SCI Youth Hunter of the Year award. They work exceptionally well on rifles.

    I had a Soft Touch installed in my pre-64 Winchester 70 .375 H & H. This has reduced the recoil significantly & worked very well last fall on the 9.5 foot Brown Bear taken with 1 shot near Iliamna, Alaska.
    Will use it in Tanzania later this year.

    Thank you everyone for your responses. I have two Gracoils sitting around so I think I will do it. I'll let you know how it works out. wireguy
