Geb: You made two good shots on distant game; congrats and it was an article I enjoyed reading. I just wonder if it would have gone the same way for someone with less skill/experience than you shooting the same bullet...
I see the value of hunting with the same bullet you practice/compete with but with the quality of today's bonded core game bullets, I don't see the need to use Matchkings, or any other match bullets for hunting; especially if the hunter intends to try ELR on a regular basis.
I hope you write more; I'll be looking forward to it.
