Thread: bad advice...

  1. #1

    bad advice...

    Having been the frequent recipient (and occasional donor) of advice that at best amounts to nonsense or at worst could actually be dangerous, I thought it would be instructive to root out the most common bits of recieved wisdom that logic or experience show to be utter tripe.

    So: what are your gems of dubious advice - the nuggets of nonsense imparted with great self importance by the guy leaning against the counter in the gun shop?

    My favourites to date:

    - rubbing yourself with wild garlic will hide your scent so the deer won't smell you.
    - zero an inch high at 100 and it'll be dead on at 200.
    - never take your moderator off, because the POI will shift each time you take it off and put it back on.

    So - add to the fun.

    .22LR's never need cleaning, so why bother with that .308?

    If you use darts in a 12 ft lb air rifle, it will kill deer "easy mate"...

    • 12 ft/lb .22 air rifle pellet is less affected by the wind as it is heavier than .177
    • Pour wax into the end of a 12 bore cartridge and you then have a solid slug!
    • Factory ammunition is more accurate than reloaded stuff.
    • etc.....

    Steyr-Mannlicher rifles are ****, inaccurate and their stocks snap in normal use.
    7mm-08 is a **** calibre
    Not using a moderator will result in unendurable recoil...
    ... therefore stutzens aren't a viable choice anyway.
