Warning:graphic Photo - what happens when you shoot a Kirby Mag

Not really a Kirby mag, but look what happened to my head after shooting my 375 RUM Kirby built (plus the 338 RUM and 300 RUM he made). All the guns sport 30" Lilja tubes and the excellent Holland QD brakes, custom stocks, trigger jobs and one of my favorites, he drills out the scope bases for #8-40 - my all time favorite, what he does to the triggers (going from 5-7 lbs to 1.5 lbs)

After shooting my 375 RUM I picked up my factory a-bolt stainless stocker in 270 WSM with 135gr MK & 62.5g of IMR-4350.

The little 270 kicks so much harder than my Kirby guns it dinged my head. It's also very difficult to shoot the factory trigger after getting spoiled by kirby's triggers.

I still find it amazing the big 375 RUM kicks so much less than the 270 WSM.

Re: Warning:graphic Photo - what happens when you shoot a Kirby Mag

Hey don't feel to bad.

I have been shooting my Allen Mag so much that when I went to sight in my muzzeloader with a 300gr bullet and 150gr of powder BAMMMM!!!

Damn scope caught right on the bridge of my nose, I thought it broke it at first but it just hurt like hell.

Those QD brakes and Kirby's skill sure makes a nice light kicking rifle

take it easy
