Re: Where does your pet load fall?
Depends on the rifle, some I push hard, some I don't. Accuracy is paramount always. Some rifles say hi vel 22's I'll keep after it till I get the accuracy and vel I want, same with the long range rig. My everyday hunting rigs, consistency is even more important than accuracy, meaning that if it shoots moa or better I want it to do that every time year round regardless of conditions, I want to know that.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
