For me it was another lesson about valid hunting loads. We all know that sometimes we can't keep our barrel as clean in the field as at the range. Temp changes, moisture, dust....you name it can all come into play. (Like 4 straight days of Alska rain on one trip!) Finding loads at the range that run redline are kind of useless out there in the field.

Very, very well said.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
