i think alot of the thinking and therefore the problem lies in the fact that many
people know by what they read. watching them fly across wide valleys and smash into a distant hillside brings about a totaly different perspective. i am a
show me type individual. i dont jump to conclusions about anything without
seeing it first. i dont own nor have i ever read brian litz,s books or any others.
about 15 and maybe more years ago we met up with bruce baer and a couple buddies while deer hunting. they had a 338x416 with them and i had a 36"
30x378. i was pushing a 200 smk at about 3500 fps. anyway since we werent seeing any deer to shoot at the idea emerged about seeing this 338 shoot.
there was a rockledge over there i had shot at many times at 1480 yds.
well to get right to the nuts and bolts part he whipped my ass bad. not only did he get there with less elevation his was decidedly more consistant. for those of you who are saying well you should have been using a 240 smk ill answer by saying you never did the comparison by shooting at 1500 did you.
put down the book and go shoot. its like checking out the rice burners with live ammo.
