Why not? I'm sure you didn't mean that to be as snooty as it sounds. If they are consistent at that range their first time out, then why build on their success? You don't need a $2000 rifle with a $1500 scope to be effective at those ranges. If it's the scopes I'm thinking of then they probably have a mildot reticle in them. I don't know if I would trust the turrets to be accurate and repeatable but if they will hold a zero then use the mils for holdovers/ hold offs.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.
The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
