One could do the same trick with an allen bolt, they are grade 8 and strong enough for pin stock. I like it.

Re: 300 Savage - Reduced Recoil Load

Suggest a 140g Monoflex (Hornady) with a slower burning powder to a midrange load; it'll have slightly less recoil, at a longer duration and may change the dynamic. :ugeek: http://ataleoftwothirties.com/?p=1026 C.
