That's funny as long as it's not you.
I saw it happen once and it put the guy on his ass, but did not cut him.
He never found the ram rod because it buried up in the grass and soft dirt.
I have shot some extreme recoil rifles ( Well over 100 ft/lbs )and have yet to
be hit by the scope because of the longer eye relief scopes that I use( 4 to 5")
and a forward position for the scope.
Length of pull, eye relief and scope position are all important to prevent this and
on hard kicking rifles a muzzle brake may be nessary if shot in the prone position.
