RANT - Is it just me or do some people just need to pisz off? I won't claim to shoot as many deer as some guys on here but I shoot a fair few and I'm happy about that. What's starting to get on my tits is the people claiming that their new super flat calibre with v-max or a-max or some other ***** is so much better than a bullet actually designed to kill deer
Did I miss something or do some of the latest generation stalkers think they have just invented stalking I don't think so. To me it's pretty simple or so I would have thought. Put a bullet in the forward chest that punches through the vital organs and makes it out the other side and a deer falls over pretty quick. Shoot it well in the head or neck a close range and the deer just falls on the spot. Do I need a suck-my-knob-max in 80grains to do that... no! Any normal bullet designed to kill deer would be just fine!
I guess my rant is about this.... us guys that have done it for a while do it just fine with a normal rifle and proper deer bullets or in park on sensitive cases may actually use frangible gear like v-max with justification. Just cause a noob has seen v-max head shooting on youtube tv doesn't change a generation of deer hunting that was doing just fine before some dick that's shot maybe 3 deer tells me I'm 'behind the times' and 'I'm not thinking about meat hygiene by chest shooting' and the best bit... '308 isn't good enough to make THOSE shots at 200m anyway, you'd need a 25-06' what the hell is wrong with these people that think this way and think that head shooting at range is what stalking is about?!.
As you may have guessed I ran into an expert that really was a **** and he wound me up.
