    I earned mine zeroing my 7mmRUM. After that incident I sent it to my smith to have a break installed. Now it is a pleasure to shoot.

    Tyrants use the force of the people to chain and subjugate-that is, enyoke the people. They then plough with them as men do with oxen yoked. Thus the spirit of liberty and innovation is reduced by bayonets, and principles are struck dumb by cannon shot: Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma

    I've done this twice. Once while zeroing a scoped 12 gauge slug gun, then again years later with a Remington 700 in .35 Whelen.

    I have become rather recoil averse the past few years. The heavy recoil in unnecessary for anything I am likely to ever do, so it is highly unlikely to happen to me again.

    I took the gun back. We had some coffee and talk.

    I can keep the Karl Kaps scope "for indefinite testing period". Fair enough,it has my DNA now.

    8mm Remington Magnum and .300 Weatherby are the only ones that made me bleed. The hard & fast kickers are the worst. Surprisingly the .338, 358, .375 and .458 magnums never got me and I'd still shoot them- just not like I used to!

    Ahhhh the infamous "Order Of The Scarlet Crescent" I see. This has eluded me as I am equipped with a judicious amount of foresight, tempered with watching others who weren't so gifted earn theirs....

    My foresight was reasonable,I thought I was given a working firearm to test. So did the shop,although they had never fired it. They thought it was ok.

    Instead being ok the Encore action violently opens up when it's being fired... the stock jumps down,falls from your shoulder and the rest jump at you...

    I've been practising like a madman to make sure I didn't get a flinch/fear/whatsoever shooting problem from the incident.

    All is going good,45-70 was breaking clays on the berm @ 75 m as usual with Hi Tek coated RCBS 325 @ 1900 fps.

    Got a friend that put a rifle scope on a 12 ga. 870, someone else sighted in the shotgun for him and come deer season opening day he drew down on a buck and "POW" right in the eyeball. He was tucked in behind a tree and some brush so he thought a tree branch got him when he moved with the deer, later that day another deer came thru and sure enough "POW", the second one brought blood. He no longer believes in scopes on shotguns.
