    My father taught me how to use a sling like that, when I was a kid. It really steadies the rifle for ya.

    I really don't think that will do much to redirect recoil. Properly used, it will assure that the butt is firmly against the shoulder.

    I made up a sling for my turkey shotgun that, when unfastened from the rear swivel and hooked over my boot toe would help control both recoil and muzzle rise(both are significant with 2 ounces of shot and 20" barrel). Worked OK as long as the turkey came in straight on.

    Used a sling like that for years shooting High Power Rifle Competition.

    Yep, pretty standard use of a GI sling for rifle shooting.

    I learned to use a sling like that way way back when I was shooting a Daisy Model 99 to practice for shooting in Jr Rifle. Used the sling there, too.

    Learned that from my Mom when I was in the Boy Scouts going for my shooting merit badge. Her Stevens 44 1/2 target was a bear to hold steady standing.
