numbers = knowledge (but only if you have the numbers...)
>> you know those small propane tanks? 5 gal i think.
OK, a 5 gallon proprane at 50 yards. We have target size and distance.
Now, to the point of the thread ("How to operate a bolt action in rapid fire"):
What are your split times?
>> the taller ones i'll stand up and space them 10 yards apart, and then try to knock them down with one shot as quickly as possible.
Right, I still understand the concept. Again, what is your shot-to-shot speed when shooting a bolt action rifle, given 5 gallon propane tanks at 50 yards?
Ask a football player how fast he is and he'll probably give you his 40 yard dash time. ("I can run the 40 in 4.7 seconds.") Numbers equal knowledge.
