3200 man wrote:Well , you got that right . When hunting the wide open Western states a shot at 500 yds is very possible as long as the wind
isn't to bad . The name of the game is accuracy , if you can put it in the curly hairs at extended ranges it's an advantage ! A
good scope and a accurate range finder is step 1 and 2 before the shot , believe me !
3200 man wrote:Most hunters suffer accuracy problems while shooting Magnum guns , not because the gun can't shoot straight but , the
shooter can't handel the recoil . The only way a hunter can fine-tune his loads and gun , is by putting rounds down the barrel ,
manageing his trigger pull and allowing his mind to relax to make the shot with a good gun rest .
Most stardard calibers will shoot and kill as far as Most shooters can shoot accurately and being able to stay in the gun is
more important than ,How Big the Case is or How much Powder it holds .
3200 man wrote:Shooting a hunting rifle to make it accurate takes a calm day with the sun at your back ,a balanced load that your gun likes
and a quiet mind with a slow heartrate . Now , you have a group you're confident with and by this I mean , you are sure you
can make the shot . With a animal standing 350 yds up hill or down hill and a slite wind blowing through the canyon , you forgot
that you are at 9000 ft elevation , so where does your shot hit ? Not where you're aiming , so experience shooting at longer
ranges has alot to do with , how successful you are or it might give you more practice at tracking a wounded animal ?

A 12ga 3 dram 1 1/8 oz 2 3/4" load has 17.4 ft/lbs of recoil......................
with a 1 1/2oz payload at 1330 fps the recoil is up to 39.9 ft/lbs of recoil.............
sort of like a 375 H&H !!
