Nice and polite response.........beat me to it.....LOL.

Desiring to use only the most accurate bullet/load for hunting is akin to purchasing the most comfortable hiking boot made that fits what you think you want, but in 3 sizes too big. It might do the job, it might not, but there is likely a far more appropriate fit from which to choose.


You're right, the most accurate bullet/load combo that shoots in my rifle...which falls into the design parameters for the game being hunted. I just assumed that was a given.

I don't know about you guys but the "right" bullet is the only way I go. It's got to shoot accurately and put game down with minimal blood shot and ruined meat. If it keeps puting meat in the freezer, I'll keep using it....Pretty simple.. wink
