Unless you've got a mile to shoot. Seriously...



On another note had a sales person at Cabelas tell me the 6.5 Creedmoor has "terminal performance issues."
It was at that point I pulled out my cell phone showing him 40 hogs I've dropped over the past years using 6 different bullets. Everyone of them efficiently dropping Texas boars from 25-315 lbs. I wasn't trying to be a jerk, just informative in hopes he stops the myth of "poor terminal issues."

I like all the former snipers that work at the Academy gun counters....Their stories and the great information that they so willingly pass on have, just so much values. I am pretty sure it is a prerequisite to being hired at Academy!!!!! bolt

Was that you in the video? I have some footage of me and a buddy at 1800 shooting. I was shooting a 7 saum and he was shooting a 7 mag. He decided to see how his GA precision 6.5 would do. After round 17 he was on the plate. With 140 hybrids.

Cabelas gun counter employees are shady at best. They need a training class or two for sure.

I had a Cabela's Outfitter try to tell me that Leupold Customer Service is garbage. I have have received exceptional service from them. Even when it was my fault. After a little prodding, I discovered that he had never tried to send a Leupold back and had never owned one.

I asked him why there were so many of his favorite scopes in the bargain cave labeled as Refurbished...he got red faced and decided he was done helping me.


I wish stupidity was not so handsomly rewarded.
