As the title says what does energy gain you when it comes to long range hunting. I just watched that long range pursuit video for the hundredth time when the kid kills a bull at 1300 yards with a 7mm rem mag shooting a 168 or something grain bullet and trying to figure out why I think I need more energy than that to kill one. So does more energy really help you or just make you feel more confident to take a shot in worse conditions? Cause we should always think we are going to hit the kill zone if we squeeze the trigger so why do I need more energy? Trying to justify keeping my 338am.
