Sorry let me clarify. I'm reading my posts seeing why you think I'm attacking everyone with big calibers. Not the case at all and I apologize if that's how it came off. I own many large caliber rifles out of bolts, levers and OU. And I am fully aware there are other great shooters on here and throughout the world. Let me clarify what I mean. I'm more speaking to the crowd that's suggesting go smaller caliber rather than get a brake because you can't handle the caliber. To me the accuracy and follow up Trump's all. And a lot of guys and I repeat a lot not everyone. Buy bigger calibers to give them a buffer. Because a mis placed shot even with a cannon will do enough damage that the animal will dispatch anyways. Can we agree on that? When I made the comment about the 300 on a giraffe. The point I'm making and realistically could have even used a 6.5 creedmoor for that point. A well placed shot Trump's all power in the world. But people I find a lot of the times go bigger because they fear in real world hunting situations you may miss a little and having a ton of knock down power will make up for it. As my argument was take less caliber, even brake it to make the rifle shoot like a pussy cat. And become really good with that rifle. Or if you want the punch, keep the heavy caliber and brake it so it's more manageable. You sir may be a great shooter. And I fully believe you if you tell me you can hit clovers with big bores. But imo, these forums are full of the average hunter. And I know if you have spent enough time at the range you know what I'm talking about. The guy who has a gun, shoots maybe half a box out of it before going on a hunt next week. Then they go hunting. I think we can all agree that is more common then the devoted hunters who spend thousands of rounds of practice. I can't count how many times I've had those crusty looks from guys at the range because of my brake. But then within a hour they are seeing my groups and asking me to sight in there rifle. Imagine that. Asking someone else cause they are not confident enough and tired of getting there ass kicked from the recoil. So I instead of encouraging people who already don't shoot a lot which is imo more then not. To get a big caliber and don't brake it. Rather get a caliber and brake it and shoot better and become more confident. Rather than get th safety net of a bazooka. As per the DG, that's fair. I missed that. But I still stand strong on argument of a brake. I would want a brake even more. Because in a heated situation where I'm taking a reactionary shot. I would want a rapid follow up. And again, no one can argue the fact that a braked rifle will have follow up shots at a fraction of the time.
