I'm with you guys...That's why I went with a .270 rather than a 30-06. That, and I wanted a rifle that shot a little flatter. I'm just a wuss I guess. Its not the recoil, its the thought of it.
I saw this guy at the shooting range with his .300 win mag and could barely put three shots inside a 12" circle at 100 yds with absolutely no precision. I'm like "you better practice a little more or go to the short range and get that scope sighted in." "Yeah, she kicks like a mule," he replied, acting all tough. I picked up my quater size group and left.
I'm sure there are guys that can shoot a .300 win mag or bigger very accurately and truthfully is probably a pretty good caliber. I've never shot a .300 win mag so I don't. All I know is a 6" group at 100 yds was not good enough for me and that's what I shot with that 7mm mag.
What good is a rifle that you're not comfortable shooting?
Thanks for your replies,
Rest in peace my friend... Mocha- Jan 20th, 2001-Feb 1st, 2009.
