Warwick, I understand the reticence re mercury. Some I have used were installed in HS Precision stocks on lighter weight 300 Win Mags which were also threaded for muzzle breaks and fitted with the Limbsaver butt pad. Recoil shooting hot loads of 208 grain A-Max were actually very comfortable to shoot.
They are pretty darned safe, in metal tubes - not for their weight but under recoil the movement of the mercury minimizes felt recoil effectively.

Each to one's own preferences of course, but I enjoy using them for that purpose.
