So I went shooting with a friend. He brought his .223 and 30-06 rifles. I have shot .223 before (and also a .308 ) so it was an easy shoot. He then ask if I wanted to shoot his 30-06. Of course I said yes. So I sit down, look through the scope, take my shot. And bam, the scope nails me in the forehead. My mistake was that I misjudged the recoil and I sat to close to the scope. 4 hours and some stitches later we decide that was enough for the day and head home. Just thought I should share this so people can learn from my mistake.
