Gentlemen thanks for your indulgence. I am a 62YO retired USAF & AAL pilot gentleman farmer living on a small horse camp on the Brazos River 45 mi SW of Fort Worth, Texas. I have here to fore been a TDS reticle ( bdc with cross wind lines ) in S&B / Swarovski / Kahales on top of Blaser rifles hunter. Though I managed a 576 yard elk and a 671y hog my best shot was a 53 yarder. My worst shots are why I have pulled a chair up next to you experienced and FNGs to KEEP LEARNING. With this Socialism economics I don't know whether to go for a : 1) Savage 12F 6.5-.284, 2) Gunwerks 7 Rem Mag, 3) Grey Bull .264 Win Mag or have 4) Chris Mathews or 5) Shawn Carlock build me a 7 WSM with a 7oo Rem action , Kepplinger singe set trigger, Benchmark / ABS wrapped 1:8 sitting in a Bell & Carlson #2092 vertical grip ( basically same as a McMillan A2 ) sighted by either a BOTW Huskemaw
or a John Burns Grey Bull Precision custom Leupold or a Kenton Industries turret on a Leupold 4.5x14. Internal Ballistics wise I believe in only moderately overbore calibres loaded in moderation, external ballistics = VLDs in my book while terminal ballistics or a two sided coin ; I believe in Barnes X bullets for close hunting and VLDs for long range.
I have not been bashful about my Q so let me know what you think please NOT what you feel...I get too much of that crap on the PC media. Thank you in advance for your time & attention. If like me , you talk faster than you type leave me your tel # & I'll call on my dime. Looks like I'm going to have to forego another cycle on the buying-a-new-truck schedule... I need a real LR rifle and some training. Let the ground school begin>>>
