I went to our local sportsman's show today and saw a booth that was offering custom rifles and scopes, I got to looking everything over and these guys acted like all the things they had where new and cutting edge and noone else sells anything like it, after I left I looked at the brochure and about fell over, they charge $3500 for essentially an accurized remington sendero and one of their scopes that has a BDC dial on it, if you want the full custom that is 6k has a custom action with what looks like a mcmillian stock and one of their huskemaw scopes with BDC dial, I guess these guys may sucker a few rich guys who don't know better but good god give me a brake how stupid do these guys think people are

Yep. I've seen their schit. Definitely geared toward the unknowing with $ money in their pockets. They turn them into snipers overnight......grin

I have seen a few Charletains do over a CZ 550 with a new stock and try to sell them for 5K as a custom DGR. One is born every moment, I guess...

There's the rub, unfortunately. Some guy sees their show or video, says I can do that too, buys the setup and goes out trying to whack stuff LR w/o putting in the time to truly learn the game. Only bad can come out of that equation.

Those are the guys with the TV show selling all the DVDs.

I'll pass, although it appears one or two of them can shoot.

I've watched their show and seen their video and always wondered how many animals were wounded and lost in shooting at these long distances? Exactely how much was really edited out. So many unknown variables between the end of the barrel and an animal at 600-900 yds..

I think they use match Berger bullets. I cant see how that would kill and animal cleanly. Match rounds dont expand like hunting bullets. They must miss a lot they just dont show it. How accurate can a factory tuned rifle be at those distances? A Rem is lucky to shoot less than 1moa. The scope look cheap as well. Ill stick to NF,Zeiss and Swarovski.

I doubt they miss anything and further doubt that they wound any game......and BTW berger bullets are awesome hunting bullets, lack of expansion is definately not a problem.

I dont agree with the price of thier guns or thier choice of scopes, but believe them to be ethical long range hunters. What that means is that they do not take shots they are unsure of and they shoot thousands of rounds each year to know what they are capable of and what thier equipment including range finders windmeters etc. are capable of.

I used to think shooting long range was some kind of voodoo. After several thousand rounds at 700 plus yards I realize that it isnt magic and doesnt take that much talent at all. It does however take a lot more dedication than most hunters are willing to expend. If you havent shot a target at that range several hundred times with good results dont launch a bullet at a game animal.
