Re: What brands of rifles and scopes?
Militarys been making mile or more shots with fixed 10X leupolds. More is better, but more means your eye has to be closer to the occular bell. and if youre shooting something you cant keep still it will bite you.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
