When comparing terminal energy - well we probably don't want to go there.
OK, I'll bite. Just how much terminal energy is really needed for a ground hog or coyote? Is that for the charging "bull" ground hog or the "doe" ground hog?
Quit trying to compare apples to oranges. Two different gun setups and two different goals, but both very good in their lane. Neither is particularly good at the others though.
As for the press releases issue, this site is also littered with them!! So well, we probably really do not want to go there either.
Richard Franklin has built many match winning and world record setting guns (by the way, how many here can say that?) and has proven repeatedly he knows how to build an extremely accurate gun whether it is a match gun or a varmint gun. You just have to venture off this site to find guys who shoot his guns like Mark Scronce, Greg Culpepper, etc all top guys in their game and even world record holders.
We have a couple or more specialists here that are very good at building LR big game hunting guns, just not every gun has to fit in that square hole in order to be good at its purpose.
