The true need for them, I fail to see other than the guy that thinks he's gonna get the shot of a lifetime at 500yds but doesn't want his bullet blowing up at 50 yds to 200 yds, where he know's in his heart he's gonna get his shot. Oh well, people like them and are willing to pay for them is all that matters.
