I could not agree more. Why build the most accurate rifle and load you can to be off in your range estimation and blow a shot?
My 6br is the most accurate rifle I have. It has taken deer, fox, and G-Hogs on the limit for cal. None of which could have been done without a LRF. (That is with my Milling skill) After 600 I shed a full MOA every 25 yards which ='s a clean miss on a fox or G-hog and a poor shot on a deer.
