Re: Q

Boyd

I picked up a copy from Butch (worn out Butch from the looks of him) yesterday, (13 Feb 2004) my wife and I watched it last evening. It was pretty good and I enjoyed it as did my wife.

Quick review:

Good:

Showed shooting in winds and that there are misses some times.

Explained some of the "errors" that lead to the missed shots.

On-Screen description of the rifle(s).

Bobby Hart showed and explained some cleaning tips and methods.

Needs work IMHO:

During Bobby Hart's tip on determining barrel twist he mentions bullet/projectile weight as the (apparent most significant) indicator for barrel twist. I've long been under the belief that it's the bullet/projectile length that is the determinant. This is a nit with me but bullet weight and length are not necessarily directly related. A slow(er) twist may stabilize a flat based round nose bullet of a given weight and not stabilize a long ogive boattail bullet of the same weight. (I call these little differences "near truths" but I believe Bobby should have mentioned the "more technically correct IMHO" determinant.)

Major reasons I bought the movie.

Watch the progression of the Point Blank from Longe Range endeavor.

To see what Butch does at the end of this particular movie.


I believe this is a good movie and the series shows the progression of the "PBfLR project". I thinks most folks would benefit from watching it and I'll certainly show it to my friends. It's a welcome addition to my hunting and shooting video collection.

Re: Q

LMAO

I didn't SAY that, you did!!

Seriously though, Bobby put out some good info and tips. Some tips were a little difficult to glean from the words spoken but all-in-all he offered good info. P. S. tell him he needs a comb or a different barber [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

(I'm still trying to figure out how a shooter can get more "stuff" in a single LOT number by teaming up and purchasing with another shooter. Seems like if I buy 1000 bullets of one LOT and another fella buys 1000 bullets in the same or a different LOT, I'm still buying 1000 bullets. It's only the UPS man that's pleased as he only needs to stop at one house and not two.)

Re: Q

I picked up the new video myself at the sportsman show. I fast forwarded throught the first time just to see the shots, now I get to watch again to listen to all the tips, and how toos. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] This and the last point blank video where wearth every cent. Keep up the good work and if I may, I think the point blank team should be in series. (big game,small game, reloading, snipers? coverage of williams port? and just good old hunted movies. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
