Agreed. My dad's we fondly call "Old Grampa" Always a 1 MOA shooter with factory ammo and has never failed to deliver.
To shorten a long story preparing for his first Elk Hunt dad bought a custom 7mm Rem Mag new Zeiss scople yada, yada, yada.
Moment of truth came and the scope was fogged up and there went his chance for an elk.
Five days later, beaten down and depressed they are driving out after loading the horses, gear etc and they spot a phenomenally large 5x5 at around 600yds.
Dad grab's old Grampa out of the back of the truck (where it had been while he was forty miles away on horse back when the new one failed) wearing it's forty year old Weaver K4.
One shot later he was trying to figure out how the hell to load it up with all the gear already loaded.
Using a winch they hung it up on the back of the horse tralier gate and drove the forty plus miles to town.
The horses were absolutely not happy.
