    My sons first time on a centerfire

    He did pretty well, took on the 270 and walloped @muckos gong at 170M and still went back for a few more rounds and avoided getting the dreaded scope eye

    Need to put some weight on that front foot not rest it on top of your rear foot, if the rifle was any lighter you would have fallen over backwards

    Thanks for pointing that out VC as it is one thing i did not notice so next time I will have to remind him about keeping one foot forward and one foot back to stabilise himself. Also he did actually shoot more than just the 270 yesterday he also went behind a 243 and a 6.5-06 so he did pretty well in the centerfire department.

    Somehow I think he will still say no to firing those 3 even though the 264WM has less of a boot than the 270 he ain't believing us

    Start him off with a sporterised 303 complete with brass butt plate and a stiff 180gr hand load and anything after that will be a breeze
