Then most, the vast majority of game is killed at normal ranges, say 200yds or less. 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.
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
