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.

I was told that the Bolt Action 30.06 has more kick back then the Auto's

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

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      sunday hopefully back on the ice

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
