    Tell him that he either needs to learn how to shoot a big gun or he needs to get a gun with much less recoil or he just needs to learn how to shoot no matter what gun he uses......

    Bart

    What kind of animals are we talking...or ground squirrel, Elephant or plains game...

    You could suggest that he tailor his ammo to the game being perused.

    Checking 416 reloading bullets there is a variety for reloading and suggest he take a class in reloading.

    Also suggest that he have his rifle checked out buy a gunsmith for accuracy as you cannot believe that he is such a poor shot, to wound every game animals that he has shot at.

    Welcome back BART, glad you are doing well. Sounds like your freind might have (as others have suggested) shot placement issues due to the caliber he is shooting. Back him down to a 375 H&H or one of the 9.3's and see how he does. Just have him try it for a season, see if it helps. If he is still tracking for a kilometer, change bullets, or have him carry an 06 or 300wm. Could always have him buy a 35Whelen

    Tell him your level of interest is inversely proportional to the distance the animal is tracked ....

    Just found out today he shot his lion at 75 meters 5 times to kill it. I was dumbfounded by his lack of skill.
