Set up a target and give us some actual measurements. IMO this video means nothing other than your rounds are hitting in the same general area, which any rifle could do.

Well the video was very clear to me. The shots looked well under MOA from the video and if Kirby said it was half MOA or less than that's what it was.

Beautiful rifle Kirby, and great shooting! What twist is the bore and what's the magazine length?

Got it. Cool video. I won't quibble over the finer points,but I will say this. I don't want him shooting at me at 1,070! 6X scope or not.

Yes I agree . This proves or highlights nothing in my view.
Although I do agree that high quality glass is better than lower quality but higher power in most cases and to a point .
Eye sight has a lot to do with it also , with 20 20 vision and a top quality scope you can see better than some other people who have less than perfect vision and no so high quality scopes.
I think the needs of personal choice is a whole lot more complicated than what one single person may be happy with.
I know a young guy that can see my 30 cal holes in the target at 200 meters with the naked eye.
I can't see them at 50 meters . There is no way we are going to be happy with the same scope power .

I think you missed the whole point, nice shooting Kirby I wish I had a place for one of your rifles. Living in the Midwest really big hammers are some what impractical.
