I gotta do a better job of making sure I have my EDGE solid on my shoulder while shooting prone. I'm sporting a nice smile over my eye!

Re: Ouch

Ummmm.... ooops! I've been kissed, but never punched. Doesn't look too comfortable. I'm assuming you don't have a break?

Re: Ouch

That sucks!
My sporter weight unbraked 300 RUM got me pretty good 2 years ago when I killed my CO elk. Had to get in a funky position to make the shot. Still have a scar from that one...

Re: Ouch

when shooting prone, lots of extra clothes on, shooting up hill etc, it is easy to do. Most of us have done it atleast once!

Besides the headache you got, it was still a blast! wow, we saw a lot of moose!

Re: Ouch

Ouch... I got the first shot my good friend (trebark on here) fired from his sporter unbraked 300 RUM on video. 4.5" eye relief doesn't help if the stock doesn't fit and the scope hits you in the nose. Was lucky it didn't break or bust open the skin! Cool video though

Re: Ouch

Ever shoot a blackpowder inline with a 250 gr.projectile over 100 grs by volume of BH209 WITH the ramrod left in the barrel? Just say the bloodtrail was a good one..

Re: Ouch

If you set the eye relief all the way forward so that you have to move your head a little
forward it will take the slack out of your neck and prevent your head from moving forward
under recoil and also help prevent getting kissed by the scope when shooting in the prone
position.

On hard kicking rifles it is a must to have the most eye relief possible and setting the
scope position to take advantage of it.

As mentioned the right length stock is also very important to prevent the scope from
giving you a ringer.

So check the length of pull and the eye relief and this should not happen even if shooting
from an awkward position.

Just a few tips.
