You know, a tripod might be lighter...but that is a neat ammo holder.
But a tripod can't help you up into a tree. I wonder why I've seen no ladder slings on sale in all those emails I get bombarded with each and every day...
Another OG here. First pulled the handle in the 70s and fooled with it occasionally and read a lot in the ensuing years (I spent a lot of years too BROKE to do much else except hunt with a 10-22), but got into the game with a vengeance in the early 90s.
What I DO is art, what I am fascinated by is the science.
My reloading activity is directed hunting, and using standard sporter weight rifles for the most part. I do like to strive for accuracy in my loading, but I won't BUY my accuracy by having rifles built. Well...I DO have one custom in 6mm.
My interest in the science of it all is really *almost* completely separate. Playing with QuickLOAD, studying internal ballistics, bullet stability...those things keep me from getting enough sleep.
I'm here to give and receive knowledge, not affirmation or adoration. If you don't like it, mierda dura
. Intellectual honesty is not for fragile egos.
