Default My Introduction to the 300 WinMag Story

Thought I was decided I “needed” that 300 WinMag. Purchased a nice wood stocked Interarms Mark X in said chambering. One trip to the range and the recoil cracked the stock at the palm swell and thought it broke my shoulder. (It was August and was only wearing a T-shirt) I looked at that rifle and thought to myself, “That’s the last time you will hurt me you SOB.”

I traded it for a 243 Win the next day.

Since those days I have been able to overcome (for the most part ) inabilities of shooting the 300 magnums. It took some doing though!!! Make sure you have plenty of eye relief on the scope and a firm grip.

Let us know how you make out.
Once more into the fray.
Into the last good fight I’ll ever know.
Live and die on this day.
