    Recoil

    I started a fella out deer hunting. The min calibre for the Sambar species in Victoria is .270 Win.
    I was running my .308 Norma Magnum and he had a .270.
    He wanted more power and decided on the .308 NM calibre for his Sambar rifle.
    I hadn't seen him for some time and when we met up we yapped about guns and deer of course and he told me " I went back to 270 because I just couldn't handle the recoil of the 308 NM"

    He got a 10/10 for acknowledging the recoil factor instead of a ribbing.
    Btw he has gone on to shoot plenty of deer in the following years.
    "you nae be needing these no more"
    I said as I slipped the knife through the cord

    Just checked out the Chuck Hawks recoil table, I was surprised at the amount of recoil the .308NM generates, makes his .270 look like a pussycat. LOL
    Hope you are keeping well John.
    I wish I was half the hunter my dog thinks I am

    No point in macho posturing! I bet your friend gets a lot more enjoyment from his shooting now that he's not flinching every time he pulls the trigger
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care
