The guy I know that has been killing deer for decades with a Russian uses the Sierra 180 gr bullet.
I have used it at the range, and it makes the best groups.
It is not boat tailed, and with my lousy marksmanship, cuts the range down from 500 yards to 400 yards, at best.
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?
