Re: best Long Range Caliber for big game! please look

First of all I was mistaken about Sierra offering a .30 cal. blitzking, which they do not. I have always been a big fan of Nosler bullets, and I have seen the proven reults on game from a variety of calibers.

Kirby I think your lessons for the young girl were awesome. Many people "psych" themselves out even before they squeeze the trigger, or should I say JERK the trigger...

I should also mention that I always try to wear my Peltor electronic muffs. Not only are they great for reducing muzzle bark, but the help even a partially deaf guy like me to hear range commands and even idle conversation while shooting! I think Midway USA is still selling them for under $70 and run on simply AAA batteries.

Perhaps I have just not tried enough, or should I say the "right" muzzle brake. All of the brakes I've used in the past severely reduced accuracy, which combined with the intense muzzle blast led me to leave them at home in the gun safe... I am probably wrong about brakes in general, and simply haven't found the magic one that works!
Any thoughts???
