Re: what is your scope brand and model and why
DANTEC, first off lets keep this civil. You obviously dont know me or anything about me. Your current tone is not nedded I am certainly not in anyones corner. I just settled a law suit with USO and my only obligation to anyone is to always tell the truth as I see it. I did learn its best to air difference in private not on public forums.
It sounds like John Williams Sr decided not to do business with a French Co? While thats not the stance I have taken it is a stance other US Companies have. Frankly I only do business with one French Company and if I did not know what a great bunch they where I probably would have not dealt with French Co's either. Thats just a reaction right or wrong by many in the USA after 9-11 and the lack of French support since. If you missed it it was a huge movement here not to use anything French or do business with the French. We buried a bunch from 9-11 and many more after. My personal list of friends is shorter because of the conflict and any preaching or calling the US names sits like a bull with a burr to most of us. Enough said.
As to JBWIII, that is John Williams Jr., most that know him like him, including me. I have found him to be honorable and straightforward. He has recently taken a bigger part in the company and thats a plus in my book. It is still owned by John Williams Sr.
As to EDM, they make the 408 Version under contract for another company. EDM also makes 338 and 50 cal rifles for their own sales. The 408 is property of the other company. EDM makes rifles better than you or I can shoot, so I say leave that alone.
As to the 408 being an accurate round or not. My experience being only 22 years as a sniper and comp in high power matches tells me it will shoot just fine, if the rifles are good, I do my part and the loads are right.
