20 posts in this topic

So I took my SBE II to the gun range today to do some sight-ins. 1st shot, I didn't expect the kick back and WHAM! The Holosight smacks me right in the nose. Took off a good amount of skin on the bridge of me nose. OUCH, I was all blurry eye and all. crazy.gif With the SBE II and Hornady SST 300 grain slugs, that thing kicks worse then a mule dear on a rute!

Uff Da!

Slugs are not much fun IMO.

I started out shooting slugs with a 20 gauge when I was about 16 and that was no fun. Heck of a way to develop a flinch when shooting.

That sounds about like a guy that is used to shooting a .223 getting ahold of a .300 Mag. Scope eye for sure for that boy.

That is generally the case anything with a auto action part of the action works buy absorbing the impact of the recoil with a bolt, pump, lever or fix there is no room for the recoil to go but directly into your shoulder so yes a auto will have less kick than others. However a bolt will tend to be more accurate than an auto loader though.

I'd like to try a 30.06 once.. But we don't ever hunt up north so I've never had the chance to. The one time we went north for bear hunting, our tires were slashed so we avoided going up north. And I don't want to go into Wisconsin.. haha

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
