    Four hours, a couple of hundred rounds and two sunburns. We didn't take as much as we usually do, but still had a lot of fun. The .300 Win. Mag. does a number on half inch steel plate. It didn't go all the way through, but nearly did with a huge bulge on the other side. Magnus is holding a 7.62x39 up to the hole the .300 Win. Mag made. Impressive penetration.

    Nice. I'm still not upgrading to 300 Winmag just yet. 308 is next on the aquisition list, after I get a reasonable place to shoot that doesn't take an hour to get to. Plus, I have to get the Romy built. I think I may have to head out your way ---

    How did the shottie run? [beer]

    Come on down, we would love to have you. The scattergun scattered nicely. Very impressive on plastic gallon water jugs. Close up on target it made a nice, big hole. It also worked well knocking down the 1/2 inch steel plate targets. The recoil was pretty mild also. It felt more like a 20 gague than a 12 gauge.

    EL, put some .30-06 AP into that .300 win mag and I guarantee that it would have went through that plate!

    No, but you can pull the bullets out of the .30-06 and load them into .300 win mag cases and shoot them. That is why I went with the .300 Win Mag over other rounds for my big bore. I use it for Elk hunting, but it is my additional duty big duty gun before I got the .50 BMG. I have AP rounds, Tracer, and I also have 173gr. ball rounds. Gotta love the .300
