    Excuses:

    a) I volunteered to go first. If I'd have gone second I'd have done what you did and put the safety of my head above getting a good sight picture!
    b) I did question the eye relief but Martin assured me it would be fine... with a smirk on his face



    Case next to a .30-06

    Well it certainly put it's mark on him!

    My little 9.3x74r is far more refined than that brute. Mind you if I hade an elephant or a rhino charging me as long as I could hit it with the first round I think that I would prefer the .460wthby.

    Looks like he stitched you up with the feet position prior to the shot......?

    I know the owner pretty well, i took his advice and walked away unscathed, perhaps I was just lucky. He's not the kind to stitch anyone up, and fired several rounds himself.

    Got to defend the owner jabali. I've never fired anything larger than my 30.06 so followed his instructions and felt fine with it. By the way, he offered everyone a shot, never took a penny. I know those rounds were costing him about 6 a pop.
