This seems like the perfect forum for me. I've always believed that knowledge is power and learning is a forever process. I've have always known that ethical and humane hunting at extended range's, backed up with knowledge of ballistics and extensive practice with a particular rifle is absolutely true. Although I have a few favorite rifles, my TC Icon, in 30-06, is my go to rifle for extended range. I'm fully aware of it's limitations and good points. In my eyes, placement counts more than anything for a clean kill. I have been an avid hunter since my younger days and like many here I suspect have raised a few eyebrows in discussions around gun shops. Looks like I've found a home.
