It's fun shooting it at the range and scaring all of the people with ARs, but it's even more fun to hunt with.

They were all complaining about the recoil so I offered to give it a go. Being use to .308 and ..30-06 and never shooting the 7mm they had me a little worried about the recoil. I took the first shot wincing, after all the talk about the recoil, and almost missed the paper. I felt stupid and ask they they were talking about with the recoil! It kicks but not like slugs, I took 4 more shots, had an ok group, and we headed out to the marsh.



That's one nice rifle. I bet the does make a few people jump at the range.
Good story.


The recoil is stout but manageable. Recoil is much more in the mind than anything, so you can get used to it. The biggest problem with that rifle is weight. I bought it to hunt and not shoot at the range. It weighs 8.5 lbs and most Lotts weigh right around 10 lbs to help with the recoil. So mine is a little bit peppy. LOL

In Africa though, rifles don't recoil at all!

I've had a 21 year old woman who might have weighed 105 shoot it, and better than most men. She loves guns and again, all in the mind.

S&W Model 19-4, my first revolver. Bought it new in 1981 and have shot many, many thousand of my handloads through it.

I was bored this morning so I did a little playing with the camera photographing some of my Ruger M77s.

First photo is my new Ruger M77 Hawkeye African 9,3x62mm.
Second photo is the 9,3 with the matching Ruger M77 Hawkeye African .275 Rigby...a pair to hunt the world.
And last is my old M77 .243 that I bought new in 1975. This rifle has put a bunch of meat in the freezer.

I'm a sucker for nice wood on a rifle. It was caught my eye when I saw this little BRNO ZKM No. 5 .22 LR. Nice wood and classic European lines made it irresistible. Best of all it is great little shooter.
