This is something ive pondered after reading the (insert brand name) fail threads, and after my buddy returned from an axis hunt with two dead axis, five beautifully petaled bullets, and a bunch of questions. None which i was able to answer. Now im not trying to start a war simply sharing thoughts and seeking opinions. We really do live in a golden age of bullets. There are so many awesome bullets out there, that you could close your eyes pick one and make good things happen with it. I would really have to go out of my way to find a bad bullet. Especially when compared to the musket balls my grandfather use to shoot. On the other hand, us nit picking every last little detail, weighing bullets checking bearing surface lengths, comparing ogives, meplats, weight retention and B.C.'s are probably what drove the industry to become what it is. So i ask you for your humble opinion, are we too critical of modern bullets?
