The funny thing is that all the info on this site and most others is free.
Sometimes you get what you pay for and sometimes not.
In any case, with all the free info at our fingertips, you'd think we'd all be shooting .25 MOA at 1000 yds.
Somehow it doesn't work that way. You have to work at it and it does get frustrating sifting through all the info that's available and trying to determine what's useful. But, like panning for gold, it's in there somewhere and sometimes you find a nugget worth keeping.
When recently accused by my wife of spending too much time reading this forum, I replied that I only needed 6 more posts to be "Silver". And, everyone knows that Silver members are smarter than Bronze.
So, don't give up yet. You're only a few posts away.
P.S. please take that commentary tounge in cheek, be frustrated if you will, take a break if you must, and then join in on the discussions. As best I can tell, this forum is here as much for you as anyone else.
