Re: opinion on Christensen Carbon rifles
I have never owned a Christensen rifle nor do I plan on it. I have talked to many shooters who have had them or have them. Most hated or hate them. A few "love" them but none of those guys shoot it more than a few shells a year right before hunting season. They dont shoot them enough to have an opinion on them. They paid top dollar for them and they look like theyre on the cutting edge of technology so they must be the bomb.
Quite frankly, they may hold 1/2" when you get them but the barrels will cook in short order and wont hold the 1/2" groups for long.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, 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.
