    “Mind over matter” does not imply it is a “figment of your imagination.” But I know it takes some mental adjustment to try and overcome flinching and otherwise shot spoiling reactions to recoil. And if you read my entire post you might have noted that I suggested tangible ways to deal with the reality of recoil. I was not at all implying that recoil is not real. But you do have to train yourself to handle the loud noise and somewhat violent push that is recoil, or else mitigate the effects of the recoil some other way.

    Mind over matter might also be expressed as mental preparation for a physical exercise or occurrence.

    Once you get the spring and hydraulic damper set correctly, these work extremely well.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work like that for recoil sensitivity...or we would all be tougher than woodpecker lips.

    I mean I wouldn't, I ain't going to the gym.

    You haven't said what it is you are shooting that is causing so much discomfort? I don't like .44 mag pistols, hurt my wrist, so I stepped down to a .41 mag, less pain. My old Rem 742 30-06 is quiet a kicker, so I use it rarely. I would say you need to find something else if you can't find a load that works.

    When i was a kid my dad bought me a 12 guage shotgun,single barrel. i grew up expecting all guns to recoil like that. In the military the M-14 was no surprise.

    Length of pull is very important. Most rifles have a short LOP. Measure from your crooked trigger finger to your elbow. should be from 12 to 15 inches. If you can extend your rifle stock LOP to that length,
    from the trigger, to the end of the stock,
    if you hold the rifle firmly, recoil will be less than a poor stock fit.

    LOP is NOT the only factor - you also have DAH, DAC, thickness of comb, radius of the grip, pitch + or -, .toe in or out, cast on or off; weight of the gun, weight of the projectile, velocity of the projectile

    And that BS about placing the the butt in the crook of the elbow, just needs to stop and go away.........................

    Holding a rifle or shotgun firmly helps, but it does not offset poor stock fit

    I had my Mosin Nagant out the other day. After 10 rounds of full power loads i had enough. I did blast 10 clays though.
