You never know what uses you will grow into, once you play with a tool.
For years, all the chronograph did for me was internet bragging, "My 223 did 4200 fps.."
Then I started using Quickload, and I need the chrono to make sure I am operating the QL right.
And now I am hunting long range, I use QL to predict the bullet drop & wind drift and I need the chrono to check the velocity.
This year, 2012, I will take hunting; Quickload, chronograph, bullets, powder primers, brass, and dies. I will use local reloading presses and find cardboard for targets locally. I get there a week before hunting season and shoot at up to 600 yards with a bi pod. I will make a drop chart to strap to my range finder.
That is a far cry from why I originally bought Quickload.
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
