Re: Why not lazzeroni rifles?
The price MAY be worth it if they did something amazing. Dont get me wrong they can launch projectiles with a reasonable degree of accuracy at top velocities. Problem is we can do the same or very near the same for cheaper with better brass availability.
I am not going to shell out that kind of dough only to be limited to the cheap ***** brass only Laz makes. Give me Lapua grade brass and we'll talk.
Lazzeroni's (IMHO) are great for guys with too much money and know nothing about LR hunting and want to beat their chest infront of their friends and brag about how fast their bullets are.
I have worked with some Lazzeroni calibers and it didnt seem to me that they were any real advantages to them. Accuracy was average, velocities were average for top end magnums. I just dont see the need to spend twice the cash on an average rig. A factory WBY MkV in 30-378 costs a fraction and shoots bullets with nearly identical velocities with the same crap brass.
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.
