Default Headache and need a back alignment!

Holy crap Batman, I got a 35 Whelen barrel from Chase and topped her w/ a Vortex Hog Hunter 3x12x56 (30 mm) scope....Just sent 5 rounds down the pipe!!! It's a mule, worse then my 300 WM!!! I didn't tighten the scope down enough either and the scope slid a little so after 5 shots (200 grain Fusions), I'm done fer today! I have a 35 REM and figured it was close to it, noooooo way! Not to mention it melted through my 3/8 AR500 silhouette target!!!

I'll torque her down and sight her in another day!!! I LIKE IT THOUGH!!!

Nope, never seen that. But I can imagine you may have a little blue in the shoulder.

Them .35 whelens are nasty, bought me and the wife 2 a couple years ago, shot mine twice and brought em back and got .444 Marlins. Sucker was WAY worse than my .300wm or synthetic stocked 7mm mag

How tight did you tighten them things? lol But I can see why the recoil is worse than your 300 WM. Took at the comb on the stock vs a regular stock. That's just asking to take a beating. Are you going to shoot something with it this year?

I actually didn't think I tightened em enough. I sent a message to Leopold and will wait to hear from em. I love a mule kicking me so punishment is OK fer now. Let me get a few more years on me then I'll maybe go to a 223! Hahahah. I always plan on killing something with my firearms but unfortunately the critters don't cooperate!!!!
