I am thinking of adding weight to the stock of my turkey gun, because i was told it helped reduce the recoil and make it a little more accurate.

I have no friends and no one would miss me if i was gone from this earth.

just put a Hogue or Limbsaver buttpad on it.adding weight is a 50-50 deal.it settles the recoil and gets ya back on target faster but then it is extra to carry...

just try a little bit at a time.it may be easier to put the lead in a ziploc bag and then put it in the stock bolt hole.it wont take much to help ya out.dont do the drill and pour melted lead thing.it sucks when you need to remove it.
