took my 30-06 to the range yesterday to get it dialed in for elk season. seems I can`t tolerate recoil like I use to. I only just turned 51 but I didn`t like shootin the `06 at all...Am I the only one that turned into a big sissy here ?? If I had confidence in my 7-08 to do the job I`d take it. We`re going to open country this year and 200 yard shots are the norm so a 30-30 won`t do.
