I met John Burns briefly in the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness in Idaho in May of 2003 while on a black bear hunt. He was getting set to fly out of the area and we chatted for a few minutes. He told me he was a part of Best of the West. I just received and viewed Beyond Belief yesterday. It was fantastic! Keep up the good work John. Brian Carlson.
I purchased the "Beyond Belief" video from John and have found it to be very entertaining and informative. It is presented, in my opinion, from a hunting point of view, as opposed to simply paper punching etc. at long ranges. I find John's explanations of his/their points of view on the ethics of long range shooting factual and it also follows my personal thoughts about shots beyond 300-350 yards. I am a newly registered member of this board but have been reading and observing for quite some time and so far I like what I see and read. It's eveidently a forum that has a general membership that understands long range shooting and also I find the the people here seem to be informative, helpful and knowledgeable about the subject. I have seen and dropped several other sites because of lack of knowledge, unethical practices, and in general just plain stupid people that only want to argue or debate every subject that comes up and never offer any helpful information etc. Again, if you have considered the video I recommend it highly and am personally looking forward to John's upcoming series on long range shooting.
hello' just stumbled onto this site while looking for the best of the west's web address...anyways I'm hoping some one could answer a quick question for me, (please let me say I'm not a balistics expert in any way but have been shooting long range since I was a kid..
My question is this, first I bought a new win 7WSM mdl. coyote topped with a leupold vxll 3x9x50, med bull barrel last year and have been having trouble getting it to zero in...with factory loads of course, this year I tried useing this stuff called copper melt, and it helped don't know why..?..but the first three shots are excelent 1/2 inch group at a 100yrds, but as soon as the barrel gets warm it goes back to 3 to 4 inch groups I let the barrel cool down and once again the first three are great, I was told to glass bed the stock any sugestions would be appreciated.....thanks Manny' [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
I have gotten away from buying hunting vidios as most of them are so poorly done that I dont finish wathing them the first time.The best the local networks come up with is Buck McNiely and him I can do without.
I did however have funds to use up in my paypal account so Beyond Believe was ordered and glad I did!Great job John and crew,very well produced and narrated!
You can put me down for a copy of your next project.
