im not saying its the pinnacle of evolution. clearly it works its been around since 1921. its tryed and true.
Once you grow up and get big boy guns you will understand what I mean. During a good month in wyoming last summer I was shooting 500-1000 rounds of belted magnum ammo a month. thats a lot of money in ammo even reloading. reloading match quality 300 wm and 7mm rem mag costs about 3$ each, 338 lm is around 4$ each and 50 bmg is around 5. I have shot my boss'd 7mm rem 250 times in a day, it punishes you. try doing that with a 50 bmg.
