Ummm, what? Are you saying he shot a 7-08 from an '06 chambered rifle?

I saw I guy do the same w/ .308 in a 30.06. Some folks figure if it fits......

There was a guy at a local shop that bought 7x57 for his 7mm Rem Mag.
Just give me some 7mm..
What caliber??...
7mm.....
7x57???
Ya, Ya thats it.

2 hours later, he was back.
Sorry, No returns on ammo.

He was luck that the mag would not hold the cartridges, so he did not attempt to fire his rifle

weekends is one word.

prettygood is two words pretty good.

You should look at getting Google Chrome the browser. It will do a spell check on what ever you type. If it is misspelled it will put a nifty red line under it.

Back on topic

Is this someone you know if so I would never ever shoot with him.

People make that mistake regularly. To the untrained eye it is a pretty easy mistake to make. Fortunately in this case (7-08 in 30-06) the bullet is so much smaller than the bore most of the pressure is released beside the bullet and does not cause problems (other than the obviouos case deformation). If a .308 is fired in a 30-06 it could be a different result because a higher percentage of the gasses are contained behind the bullet and an excessive headspace problem can cause the case to slam into the bolt face and damage the bolt and or extractor.

As for the grammar police issue. This is a multi-faceted issue.

Trolls from the anti gun crowd sift through this and other gun related sites looking for evidence we "gun owners" are uneducated knuckle dragging cretins. We would prefer to not give them any more ammunition (pun intended) for attacks on the 2nd Amendment.
Many of us are "older" and detest the dumming down of our society. The English language is sacred to us. To hear the language bastardized by the "younger generation" is repulsive. To see it butchered up on the page (or screen) is equally repulsive. I tend to choose my words carefully to insure my point is clear. I am careful to type clearly and properly to maintain a degree of dignity. I type all day long on Police reports and court documents. These items will eventually be picked apart by bottom feeding defense attorneys that are looking for any chink in the armor of a criminal case. If they cannot attack the facts they attack the intelligence of the author. They make their money by creating "reasonable doubt". If they can convince a juror (it only takes one) that one of the people involved in a case is a little bit stupid, they can win.

Caps are your friend. They help to insure the reader knows when a new sentence is beginning or that a word is a title or name (Detective vs detective, Colt vs colt, Mr. vs mr.)
