Re: Low recoil long range cartridge

Thanks, that helps alot i understand now, so if you enter the corrected pressure then you have to enter the elevation, and if you enter the actual pressure then leave elevation at zero. Right?

Why would anyone get made because you want to use an inferior long range bullet at twice the cost.

You probably know something that all of the guys here who've been there, done that, got the t-shirt missed.

It's your choice. And, it may be the best choice for you.

Just kidding. Don't get mad.

Re: Low recoil long range cartridge

*Cough* heh...some of us live in states like California... /sigh... One Day I WILL live in a free state! Then again with the way hunting laws seem to be going it may not be all that long before the Free states join the ranks of us Californians :(

That said, I still enjoy target shooting with Bergers

+1 use the SMK if you have something against Berger
