Out testing a 338 Snipe-Tac

I'm in the process of finishing up another Snipe-Tac, A big brown truck dropped off a box from ABS barrels monday. Inside was a 1.400 breech tapered to 1.200 at the muzzle, 30" long. Man does this barrel look good! I got the bbl fitted and stock ready, now for some initial tests, BUT i have't had time to put on the muzzle brake yet...HMMM [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Well it can't be all that bad shooting a 11# rifle 140grns of WC872 and the 300MK bullet...Ok Well...i think i seen this same thing in a cartoon one day, Elmer fud shot the gun and it drove him back into a hay stack. Well it wasn't that bad but it wasn't pleasant either. I rolled up a towel behind the stock for my shock absorber...the hardest thing was hanging onto the rifle. The first two shots in one hole, third was about 3/8" high. I can safely say it will not be shot again untill the brake is installed. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I'm on my way to the chiropractor...updates later. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Black Diamond 408,
LOL now you know what's like to shoot a real man's rifle. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
After getting slammed twice on the same place of your shoulder, maybe you did press a little harder against
the shoulder as a deffense mechanism and caused the
bullet to impact 3/8" hight; still great shooting! IMO [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
