Dude, you have not read the last few posts I've made have you.....My comments were intentionally to rile you up.....I even stated so,
This and the posts you refer to above are indeed trolling Rock Star. You yourself called it "Stirring the pot" and I assure you the majority of the members here would rather not read this kind of worthless crap. Why don't you take it somewhere else.

    I will stop stirring the pot. I do appologise for my actions.

    For what its worth.....

    I'm sure most of the folks on this site have watched this video of Gunwerks Aaron Davidson's 12 year old son Danner smacking a nice bull elk at 1376 yards with his 7mm mag:



    Its an impressive shot.....12 year old or not.

    That was a good shot, but he missed the first shot and the bull ran off when hit on the second shot. I'm not going to question Arron's judgement or ethics because it's not my place. He's a big boy and can make his own decisions. That said, I would not have attempted that shot on a bull elk at that distance with that rifle and bullet. Maybe a deer, but not a bull elk.

    Here on the other hand is a bull shot @ 1314 yds with a 338 "overkill" rifle. The difference in performance is clear and a first shot hit.

    Nice!!!

    Now that's why I want a Remington 700 Sendero SF 338 RUM to go with and complement my twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs.

    What kind of laser rangefinder is Shawn using in the video?

    It looks like a Zeiss Spotting Scope that he's using.
