Now your not telling me you wrote this on teh Nosler chat board did you???
"Now I know that the 416 was not created fo 450 yard shots on antelope .... but being the radical that I am I love disproving popular theories!
Example: The load I used for the 416 WBY was 120 gr of RL 19 with a 330 gr GS Custom bullet. The GS Custom has a BC of .545 so at 3100 fps it has almost the EXACT SAME TRAJECTORY as a 300 RUM with a 200 gr HIGH BC bullet at 3100 fps.....with a couple of more thousand ft/lbs that is!
I know I think is a sick way but it is fun!"
So you will use a 416 Wby on pronghorns because in your own words "being the radical that I am I love disproving popular theories!"
But you are opposed to GG shooting a buffalo at 1000 yards?
Again, I could care less what you use to hunt with, hell I shoot chucks with 50 BMG rifles, I have no issues shooting a pronghorn with a 416 Wby but to say that what GG was doing was not hunting but to hear you say that you basically live to buck popular opinion........
Sorry but your talking out of both sides of your mouth on this one. I can assure you that you could have cut the distance to those pronghorns by another 100 yards at least. I am sure you do not feel that trip was a hunting trip, or do you?
Just stay consistant my friend, as long as everything was legally done and the animal is killed with one shot what else matters.
Remember what comments you have already made about yourself before you start poking sharp sticks at others, it will come back to bite you and use your own words to do so.

Why are you taking this so personally. We just differ in ideology as far as big game hunting go. However if it makes you feel better I will seek some therapy. Man oh man!

Why do you take it so personally and attack those that hunt long range????
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
I have always enjoyed POP's post's, but this is a little dissapointing, just admit that you screwed up, drop your pride, and lets move on. Everyone knows that GG's shot was ethical. Heck with that size of vitals he could have backed up another 500yds or more and still have been ethical, so why does it matter....
ok I'm stopping, I wasn't going to say anything, but I was a little dissapointed. hope all gets back to normal soon...
