Oh and yeah, the bit about the .25s was a reminder that they too and other cartridges are more than adequate for plain old deer hunting within more normal ranges, if there is such a thing.
You have to admit, your ability to make long shots as you do, didn't fall in your lap. And you don't use just any cartridge and bullet. It was meant as sort of a reality check is all. OK I'll go to my room now. Sorry if I ruffled feathers, but then again I'm so darn good at it,
