Wow that was bad. I just got a 300 rum and first time out a friend tried to shoot it and did not know how to get on a scope and it split his eyebrow clear open. It has occured to me that very high power guns are a danger to the inexperienced. Stay away unless they are yours.

Re: Recoil Galore!!!

I was only shooting 168's and not at max load either. I tried to tell him what to do, he thought he know better. He thought he was backing off the scope not seeing ffov but he was actually going closer. Now no one shoots it but me.
Thankfull it was minor in that the cut stayed closed, but he did flip out and we had to leave. It was a huge waste of a trip. I now have a rubber guard on it just in case.
