300 RUM oops

Well I took my hunting partners daughter (14) to the range yesterday. She has a pacmeyer(sp) slip on recoil pad that she always takes with her. She shot a while and went to the ladies room. Well I wanted to squeeze off a few rounds so I did. The first round felt like a .243 I thought OH CR@P that didn't feel right so I put the gun down and backed away for 5 minutes. When I opened the bolt the shell had fired, so I looked down the barrel and it was free from obstruction. So now I am like WTF? Jennifer came back and wanted to shoot more and I told her what happened... Then she looked at the rifle and said "Yea it does, thats why i use the slip on recoil pad." I felt REAL stipid right about then.

Maybe she has the right idea.
"I am a stone. I do not move. Very slowly, I put snow in my mouth and he won't see my breath. I take my time. . . I have only one bullet. I aim at his eye. Very gently, my finger presses on the trigger. I do not tremble. I have no fear"
