Where would you want another hunter if there's no place to walk side by side or parallel and how should he hold his firearm?

You seem to have missed my point, I wouldn’t let you in particular behind me as I believe the way you carry your rifle is dangerous, you are carrying it with the firing pin against a live cartridge. It won’t take much to set that cartridge off.

Didn't miss anything. Never said I had a live round . You made an erroneous assumption. Now please answer my question instead of dodging it. Where and how do you want a fellow hunter walking in a single file line?

And what happens if you fall and the bolt takes a hard blow. Had a friend that insisted on doing the same, lucky it only scared him shitless when it happened.

Good point and in future I will have an empty chamber.

I don’t mind a person with a rifle behind me if it is probably safe. I apologize when I first read your post I thought you were the one that posted Dr Rays post where he said he he had a cartridge in the chamber. When I’m hunting if I don’t have a good 3 position safety I do not carry one in the chamber till I need it.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
