Re: Minimum yardage for .30-378 Wby. vs. Whitetail deer???
Don't question my abilities until you've seen me shoot, please?
Just because I don't know your "slang" internet-forum term for Ballistic Coefficient, you assume I don't know how to take long range shots?
I have made more than my fair share of 400+ yard shots on game.
Most of which were with a Browning A-Bolt Composite-Stalker w/ BOSS, in 7mm Rem. Mag....using an original Bausch & Lomb Elite 3000 FireFly 3-9x50 with a 30mm tube & German #4 reticle.
Shooting Federal Premium 160gr. Barnes Triple-Shock XLC-Coated X-Bullets (factory load).
I have also shot many other things in the 1,000yd. range with my custom-built, M24-barreled, Remington Model-7 .308 Win. sniper rifle. Topped with a Nikon Tactical-Elite 2.5-10x44 with dual-IR (green/red), infinite parallex adj., 1/8 MOA Infite-Adjust turrets & a 4" sunshade.
Yeah, I don't have expensive & nice guns because I have money....B/c I DON'T have money.
I have them, b/c I collect them...and I KNOW how to use them.
What's the point in having a $6,000 sniper rifle, if you don't know how to use it properly???
That's like buying Lieutenant Dan (Forrest Gump) a bicycle............it's pointless?
