you don't want to do this!

Inlägg av freddygotarf »

My brother inlaw sent me these picture's.This is his friends cousin who accidently fired a 270 win in his 7mm mag.
He was very lucky but they did take some schrapnel out of his eye and face.
One would think that a 270 in a 7mm wouldn't be to bad as it is smaller in diameter but looking at the gun, WOW!
I think he's going to be a bit gun shy for a while.

It´s too late for your brothers friends cousin, you can e-mail this article to him though:

There´s more to it than bullet diameter - case lenght/diameter and shoulder geometry will also have an influence on a KABOOM or not........

He´s lucky, he seems to have put himself at a great risk.

Dude, he was lucky. If that happened to me I'd reject shooting as a hobby as I'd reject the puke of a tuberculosis infected cocker spaniel
