Last night at dinner a family member told me about how a 25-06 when shot at distance would have a trajectory that was on at 100 yards low at 200 yards, but would curve back up at 250 yards and be just a hair low at 300.

Another long time hunter and family member said a 270 zeroed at 100 yards would be less than an inch low at 300 yards. Have been told the same thing about 22 hornet, 222, and 22-250

What have you heard and where do you think stuff like this comes from?

I have no idea. I canít wrap my mind around that sort of ignorance. I tend to distance myself from people like that before I have a chance to find the source.

This isnít related to guns, but we HAD an idiot on our lease that told us there are no coons in Texas. Theyíre all coatimundis.

Hes not a gun guy or even a hunter. I just smiled and said no, then offered to mount it for him.

I have heard folks say that a bullet will actually rise before it begins its drop. Was any explanation offered for the wave like trajectory?

Yup.

And I respond "completely false, 100% sure about it". That is usually accepted.

I heard that a .50 BMG will suck the eyeballs out of a doe with a near miss! ROFL!! I've heard some really off the wall things about a lot of things firearms wise. I tend to forget them quickly, but it amazes me how uneducated some people are when it comes to firearms.

Wow, I should have kept a written log on these.

I had a guy argue with me that the things on top of a scope were "turnips", not turrets. I have lots of them.

I'll think of more later.....
