It is not cool to blow your eyes out from to much recoil.

I am now 62 years old and recently have had to quit shooting my .338 WM. I do not have a detached retina, but I now have a detached vitrious. It is the lining over the retina. My right eye now has a slight permanent cloudy thing floating around in it. Doc said- no more.
Bouncing down to 7MM Mag stuff and not the RUM or STW variety.
