That is what struck me funny, or something along those lines. It was very late. Most folks know me here and expect a little good natured ribbing.
If the lottery comment is offensive... Well, I still think it's accurate. You're beating some long odds. (Bearing in mind, I'm assuming .5 moa means .5moa significantly beyond rock chucking range.)
With your coin invested, you surely believe something different. Confidence certainly has value, however it's bought. Somebody around here asked for opinions. It's certainly possible your opinion is more accurate than mine. I'm in Utah, Christensen arms is in Utah, maybe you are too. I'm always interested in new folks to shoot with. I'm certainly willing to have my opinion changed.
What do you know? You've offered a couple opinions. "It shoots better'n I can hold". "Only reason to reload with Wetherby's is to save cost". "I'm just a hunter who knows his caliber and how to shoot it". "It's a good rifle to carry around" "...If you want to play sniper you probably want something else"
These beliefs seem to be serving you well. I wouldn't call 'em knowledge. I wouldn't even say 'em. But hey, it aint broke...
Traditional hunting? I was assuming we were talking about long range hunting. It's not really traditional for me. My dad didn't do it until I taught him.
As for dead animals complaining.... Best keep that kind of stuff under your hat.
