Didn't an accidental double with a 500 kill a lady a few years ago?
Second shot was under her chin and straight up. There was supposedly video that I declined to watch.
Boyfriend handed her one fully loaded.
I started my stepdaughter out with just one in the 9mm magazine.
Sure enough she was startled and spun around and swept me and everyone else standing there.
Went back to the Kimber 22 for her.

@dddoo7 Sadly some people prefer to follow the sayings of Mao, Stalin, or Lenin rather than Jesus in response to crisis.
“War can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.”
― Mao Zedong
"It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed."
“Ideas are far more powerful than guns. We don't let our people have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?”

RE: Looking to leave your blue state for a red one???
I am afraid it will eventually turn her in Georgia.
No telling where we would go if that happens.
Thankfully we already have State Preemption so the cities can't do their own thing.
Right now there is a balance of power between rural GA and Metro Atlanta which used to be heavily tilted right.
Last election some counties went Blue that had been Red my entire life.
RE: Dot drill rate of fire?
Thanks. I am browsing for Hodgdon online load data.
Lots of loads for 30-06 with a 155 Palma style are supposed to be around 2900+ and in the low 50+ grains powder weight.
Looking for the best blend of lower pressure and still a decent velocity with a moderate case fill.
4350 and H414 are compressed at 60 grains but Varget is within 50 fps at only 50.7.
H4895 is looking good and I have a pound of that and some 4064.
24" barrel in my Garand.
For my 270, loads are not nearly as fast for the same bullet weight and powder.
Is that due to the smaller bore causing restrictions on gas expansion?
It is a 100-200 fps drop compared to a 30-06.
Dropping to a 6.5-06 it is still slow.
6.5 Creedmoor Speeds basically around 2700-2800 despite having 60 grains of case capacity.
Different case geometry than the 6.5PRC you showed yesterday but similar capacity yet much lower velocities.
Looks like when it is rebarrel time for the 270, I will go bigger bore to a 280 or 30-06.
Does that make sense?
Dot drill rate of fire?
When you shoot the dot drill with a center fire rifle , what is your typical rate of fire?
One round per minute?
How much cool down time to allow heat dissipation?
With a good heavy barrel, can you go nonstop and only pause for reloading and rebuilding NPOA?
What would you minimum spec a barrel out at for a long action such as a 30-06 for such a string of fire?
I was looking at a Benchmark #5 and a Lilja #4 to replace my factory 270 barrel with.
The Lilja #4 is probably too thin but would the Benchmark #5 at 0.700" muzzle and 1.250 breach be able to take the heat?
Most Palma stuff is around 0.750" for a 20 shots for score in 20 minutes rate of fire with 2 sighters allowed.
Found a deal on a McMillan Classic Hunter for $400 also.
My Birch stock chipped so after this season I will probably restock and rebarrel.
Just want a nice all around deer, hog, stray coyote rifle that can use off the shelf ammo in a desperate situation or if I sell it to someone that doesn't reload at a later date.
Will be testing my 110 VMax loads this weekend.
