Trust me, I own a proof 30 nosler and when ur reaching out to the cheap seats it makes a difference. Running a 210 berger vld,rl 26 at 3060fps muzzle velocity.Has anybody tried the new Hornady .300 win mag high performance ammo? According to the Hornady charts you can buy a factory load and fire it in a 24 inch barrel, and move a high BC 180 grain bullet at 3100 fps. Zeroed in at 200 yards you are only 5.5 inches low at three hundred. This fact makes one wonder why anybody would ever need the imaginary extra range of something like the 28 Nosler. Why not just stick with what is tried and true and not so expensive? Another of asking this is, in real life conditions does the purported superiority of the fancy "state-of-the-art" rounds like the Nosler calibers enough of an improvement to matter? Or is it merely planned obsolescence?
Yup haha.I mean, are we just going to fly over the fact that the term "planned obsolescence" was heard for the first time by many folks on the meateater podcast the day this post was made?
Looks like to me that the op listened to the podcast, liked the term and attempted to apply it somewhere. The 300wm is still going strong at almost 60 years old, so if they planned for it's obsolescence, they did a terrible job.
This reminds me of the chemtrail conspiracy theory. People live longer than they have at any point in history, but....... people think they are killing us with chemtrails. Well, if they are, they suck at it..
OP "more ethical"...hmmm, I won't waste time going to look for the thread? We each have our own ethics and morals, when it's hunting related. I know what my equipment, training & capabilities are, and know when and when not to take the shot.The op has another thread about making a law to only have single shots for closer “more ethical” hunting.

This OP isn't even in the right forum category!
