That is a beauty of a rifle, to bad it kicks like a beast..
Incredible rifle, and by the performance it is a real nice shooter. I am not a fan of rifles that hurt when you pull the trigger. I do it, by I don't enjoy helping people zero their shotguns with slugs during the range days prior to the Deer opener.
For the kind of hunting that I ask of my rifles, Deer and hopefully Elk again in the future a 30-06 will take care of business with 1/2 the recoil.
