Reloading Accident

My neighbor started the shooting sports last year he bought a .308 for deer hunting, he asked me to spend some time to teach him..I have no time at this moment so I told him not to do any till he starts to read as much as he can.,till I can get some time to come over and help him.

Well he just did'nt listen and loaded a few rounds, he called me all upset telling me he fired one(a reload) and it through flash in his face a it did'nt go boom!one old man pulld his bolt the brass was burned from soot and the Bullet was stuck 10 inches into his barrel.

what can I tell this guy?

Re: Reloading Accident

I’d be careful as he doesn’t seem to pay attention, so tell him you’re too busy to teach. The next time he blows himself up his family will be suing you for his injuries.

+1 on what Jim said. It's not worth it

AVOID HIM LIKE THE PLAGUE! He's already proven he doesn't take well to advice or instruction and has clearly demonstrated he is impatient. Not my kind of student. If you associate with this guy in loading, and he gets hurt, it is not unthinkable that his family might indeed sue YOU.

Wash your hands of this now.

Re: Reloading Accident

Thanks guys for your advice, please excuse me at this time, as I told my neighbor, I had no time well its not just all that! I am hurt real bad and I doubt I will be walking in the next 3 years.
I have good days and I have bad days. I think you can see in the posts.
I wont throw in the towel and give up. I got to much ass to kick yet! so if I make a shoot full of mistakes on my wrighting, don't think I am a nut, its the meds.
But I still like to post and talk shooting sports..
KC
